Notes & Reviews:
This wonderful collection of Debussy's chamber music features rare performances by many notable Classical stars. Conductor Michael Tilson Thomas for instance performs on piano accompanying Joseph Silverstein in the Violin Sonata and Jules Eskin in the Cello Sonata. Featured also is an even rarer chamber transcription of Debussy's familiar orchestral masterpiece Prelude a L'apres-midi d'un faune.

Some might find the medium-paced, relatively wide vibrato of flutist Doriot Anthony Dwyer mildly distracting, but these 1970s performances are as expertly played as they are beguiling engineered.
