Notes & Reviews:

Debussy published these 24 pieces, in two books of 12 each, in 1910 and 1913; they thus date from the watershed between the composer's impressionistic middle period and the striking neo-Classicism of his later years. The Préludes are immensely varied in character, from the tender 'Fille aux cheveux de lin' to the impassioned, brilliant 'Feux d'artifice.'

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This reissue of Collard's Preludes unveils great sensitivity and interpretive mastery. Luminous works like 'Ondine' or 'Canope', she plays 'General Lavine' with the bravado and eccentricity the work demands. 'La Cathedral Engloutie', awash in color, resurfaces, spacious and mysterious. Collard's pacing and precision illuminate the architecture of the piece. Fantastic recording - a must-have for Debussy enthusiasts.
