Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
The hallmarks of Hamelin's style are always in evidence, and the clarity with which the polyphonic aspects of Reflets dans l'eau come through gives a sense of momentum rarely perceived in this piece. Indeed, it is the lack of impressionism in Hamelin's playing which guarantees the effectiveness of Debussy's impressionistic whimsies.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2014
Hamelin's stature, extraordinary from the start, increases with every new issue. And here in his latest album he subdues his legendary, transcendent technique to convey Debussy's very essence with a surpassing ease and naturalness....Hamelin's glistening sonority is flawlessly captured by the Hyperion team. This is a disc to treasure.

A new album from Marc-André Hamelin is always cause for celebration. Here in his first Debussy recording for Hyperion Hamelin presents the two books of Images - Debussy’s coloristic masterpiece, a bewitching compendium of scents, colors and sounds. Also recorded here is the second book of Préludes, in a poetic and evocative performance.
