Notes and Editorial Reviews

The harmonia mundi label's ongoing series of new recordings marking the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy continues with this collection of piano works. Following his acclaimed recording of Rachmaninov's Preludes, Nikolai Lugansky presents a finely nuanced portrait of this composer who was especially fond of traveling. Whether it traverses time (Hommage Haydn) or the most vividly imagined open spaces, the music in this program is concerned above all with the interplay of light and color.

-----

REVIEW:

The plethora of color this radical music contains is vibrantly illuminated in Lugansky’s clear-sighted approach.
