Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This volume of debussy's orchestral works under ernest ansermet brings together all of the composer's acknowledged masterpieces together with some of the shorter pieces. The rare 1951 recording of prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and the 1949 recording of the images make their first appearance on cd. Ernest ansermet's second recording of la mer - he also recorded the piece for decca in 1947, 1957 and 1964 - his first of the nocturnes, and the early stereo version of jeux are, likewise, all rarities. The anthology is completed with an authentically french-sounding rapsodie pour clarinette as well as a lush clair de lune and a delectable petite suite.
