Notes and Editorial Reviews

Debussy's Twelve Études have long been regarded as being among the most enigmatic of his piano works - and have thus been among the least often performed. Chilean-American virtuoso Pualina Zamora, however, is one of today's more adventurous leading pianists championing these keyboard masterpieces. In this second Delos album featuring her artistry, Paulina's brilliant performances of Debussy's seldom-heard etudes attest to both her technical powers and interpretive acumen. And she continues to prove to her audiences that - beneath these studies' outer veneers of finger-twisting technical difficulty - lie marvels of rare atmosphere, tone color and sheer beauty.



A sincere and
Read more persuasive musician, Chilean-American pianist Paulina Zamora’s playing reveals a long and fond relationship with the Études. Pieces such as ‘Pour les quartes’, ‘Pour les huit doigts’ and Pour les degrés chromatiques’ are suffused with distinctive atmosphere.

– Gramophone

Ms. Zamora is certainly a force to be reckoned with in these works and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing these beautiful pieces played with such panache. If you want another recording of these pieces then do give it a go.
