Notes & Reviews:

Starry Night is Michael Lewin's fourth studio recording for Sono Luminus, providing the companion disc to his critically-praised Beau Soir (DSL-92175), containing the Debussy Préludes Book II and other works. Starry Night opens with worldly "Estampes" (Prints) (1903), which contains three movements: Pagodes (Pagodas), La soirée dans Grenade (Evening in Granada), and Jardins sous la pluie (Gardens in the Rain). It follows with the delightfully impressionistic "Arabesque No. 1 in E Major (1888), "Golliwog's cake walk (1908), "Les soirs illuminés par larder du charbon" (Evenings lit by the burning coals) (1917), and of course "Nuit d'etoiles" (Starry Night) (1880). "Nuit d'etoiles" was written by Debussy when he was 18 for voice and piano, using a setting of a poem by Banvile. Koji Attwood made a stunning transcription for solo piano, making its debut recording on this album. The album finishes with Debussy's iconic "12 Préludes, Book I" written in 1910. Lewin adds a refreshing grace to these traditionally revered pieces.
