Notes and Editorial Reviews


At any given moment, pianists born outside France who are convincingly identified with French keyboard repertory are relatively few. Steven Osborne, from the outset of his career, has been among them.

This latest demonstration of his way with the French is this splendid new release, presenting a bouquet of mature Debussy works. He traverses this well-known repertory with obvious relish, relying on immense musical and technical resources to reveal fresh, unexpected perspectives on music we all thought we knew.

This is music making of great subtlety and finesse which neither lovers of Debussy and French music nor those who value piano-playing on the
Read more highest artistic level will want to miss.
