Notes & Reviews:

This eclectic recording illustrates the close relationship between painting and music during the 19th and 20th centuries. Through various composers from Debussy to Mahler, we are shown, as Liszt remarked, how 'as instrumental music gradually progresses... it tends to become ever more tinged with that ideality that has marked the perfection of the visual arts...'.
