Notes & Reviews:

"...Of the 18 tracks, only 4 are actual studio recordings made...and approved by Debussy himself...[The] main interest is, of course, Debussy's playing--what we can hear of it, given that these recordings were made 96 years ago. But...enough emerges to say that Debussy's playing was characterized by textural clarity, sparse pedalling, natural rubatos and transparent chords..." -Beversluis, ARG
