Notes & Reviews:

This exciting new recording marks the debut on Chandos of the French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet with one of the summits of the piano repertoire: Debussy's two books of Preludes, complemented by the only recently rediscovered and rarely recorded late prelude entitled Les soirs illumines par l'ardeur du charbon.

BBC Music Magazine
Jean-Efflam Bavouzet has a wonderfully light touch, imbuing 'Les collines d'Anacapri' with a skittish exuberance, or creating delicate wisps of mist in 'Brouillards' evoking Debussy's advice to forget that the piano has hammers. The opening of 'La terrasse des audiences au clair de lune' floats languorously, captured in marvellous sound, with warm bass textures and clarity without harshness in the piano's upper registers.

Gramophone Magazine
... Bavouzet commands all the shading, nuance and timbral sensitivity one expects in Debussy, together with virtuoso flair and characterful spontaneity that adds welcome backbone to the composer's "hammerless" aesthetic.
