Notes & Reviews:

The "Debussy, Music and the Arts" exhibition, organized by Paris's Musée d'Orsay, proposes to evoke the musician's major encounters with contemporary artists and poets. Paintings, drawings, and pastels - along with first editions of Mallarmé, Gide, and Louÿs - recall the musician's admirations and friendships. His music will be present in major autograph scores, rare editions, and projects of sets and costumes for Pelléas, the ballets on the Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun and Jeux, and The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. This choice of historic recordings proposed by Jean-Michel Nectoux, curator of the exhibition, will allow for listening to the conductors, pianists - including Debussy himself - and singers who were his first interpreters, such as Ninon Vallin, Jane Bathori, Claire Croiza, Mary Garden & Hector Dufranne (Mélisande and Golaud in the Pelléas of 1902), Ricardo Viñes, Camille Chevillard, or Toscanini. A real treasure trove!
