The Claude Debussy Collection / Piano, Chamber, Orchestral, Opera, Ballet & Songs

Notes & Reviews:

French composer Claude-Achille Debussy (1862-1918) was among the most important of all French composers and a central figure in European music at the turn of the last century. Noted for its sensory component and for rarely forming around one key or pitch, Debussy's music often reflects the activities and turbulence in his life and virtually defines the transition from late-Romantic to 20th - century modernist music.

The Claude Debussy Collection, a specially priced, limited-edition 18 CD box set is truly a treasure trove for all who would like to hear more of the composer's famous works. Included are such popular orchestral pieces such as La Mer, Nocturnes, Prelude a l'apresmidi d'un faune, Images, followed by ballets such as Jeux and La Boite a joujoux in legendary interpretations by Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez and Charles Munch.The chamber music collections feature stellar interpretations from James Galway, Lynn Harrell,Steven Isserlis, James Levine, Andre Previn, Jean - Pierre Rampal and the Tokyo String Quartet.
