Notes and Editorial Reviews

Like Chopin, Claude Debussy merely asks the pianist to give him everything, from steely strength and lightning quickness to the most delicate poetic utterance, to be observant of structure yet appear to be free of it. Jean-Yves Thibaudet is one of the choice few who can deliver all these items, and now, following up on the considerable achievement of his Ravel recordings, he completes his survey of Debussy piano works.
This installment makes for a wonderfully varied program, including the popular 'Suite Bergamasque' and 'Children1s Corner' as well the two great sets of 'Images,' among Debussy1s most potent and poetically descriptive pieces, and the somewhat neglected Etudes, late works of visionary abstraction. Throughout, Thibaudet
Read more shows great control of color and shading while remaining more than equal to the considerable technical challenges. He seems to have digested the music thoroughly and recreates it with an air of spontaneity. If he falls short anywhere, it would be in matters of sentiment, as his 'La plus que lent,' for example, is not the most affecting, but elsewhere he reigns supreme. Not since the legendary Walter Gieseking has anyone played so much of this music so well. Read less
