Notes and Editorial Reviews
“Claude Debussy is still the greatest musical enigma that has ever existed,” said Aldo Ciccolini. “You never get to the bottom of his music. That is perhaps why he will never be forgotten: people will never give up trying to make sense of him. Debussy never fails to surprise you … and his music has a charm that is quite indefinable.” Ciccolini, though born in Naples, confessed to having a French soul and he distinguished himself as a supremely subtle and illuminating interpreter of the composer who described himself as ‘musicien français’.
