Notes & Reviews:

Debussy was one of the most important and influential composers of the early twentieth century. This recording features two of Debussy's most harmonically innovative and imaginatively orchestrated works. 'Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune' (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun) evokes a pagan world, as the faun of the title takes his ease in the afternoon shade on a summer day. The three symphonic sketches that constitute 'La mer' (The Sea), inspired partly by Katsushika Hokusai's famous colour woodcut 'The Great Wave Off Kanagawa', offer subtly nuanced evocations of the sea from dawn to midday, of the waves and of the dialogue of wind and sea.
