Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Cuban-born pianist Jorge Bolet made this superb recording of a selection of Préludes by Debussy less than two years before his death in 1990. ”Bolet’s performances, with their inimitable beauty of line and shimmering sonority … were like some serene and final distillation of all he had learnt and known, the massive and legendary virtuosity of earlier days directed into an ever increasing concern with more durable musical truths.” Gramophone.
