Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

An innovative genius, Claude Debussy is famous for his mature "Impressionist" music. He frequently performed four-hand piano pieces in concert, most of these works either having been composed or arranged by him. The imaginative figuration, kaleidoscopic sonorities and moment of dazzling virtuosity in these rarely heard works from the 1880s are a testament to Debussy's skills as a performer and composer. The piano duo of Adrienne Soos and Ivo Haag is one of the leading Swiss ensembles.

Fanfare
The performances are appropriate to the music's softness of spirit. Adrienne Soós and Ivo Haag... have a fine sense of the music's graciousness and sweet lyricism... these performances would be well worth hearing... warmly recommended.

American Record Guide
The youthful energy and excitement to these virtuoso works is perfectly realized by Soos and Haag. Duets were a favorite pastime of the young Debussy, especially in his years in Italy. He often programmed them in his concerts and was unquestionably a great pianist.
