Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
This collection contains all Debussy's works for orchestra as well as many orchestral arrangements of his piano music. Together these display a rich panorama of Debussian sound and a remarkable insight into the composer. Established arrangements by Debussy's contemporaries, including Ravel and Caplet, are complemented by more recent arrangements from composers such as Colin Matthews and Robin Holloway. The conductor Jun Markl believes that Debussy 'set up a model of orchestration for the rest of the twentieth century' and it is with this conviction that he draws from the Orchestre National de Lyon such 'world-class playing' (American Record Guide).
'A richly satisfying collection, immaculately recorded, with its full measure of rarities.' Gramophone on CD 2'These treasurable pieces have never sounded finer on disc.' Classic FM on CD 5
