On their previous Supraphon recordings (SU4185 Musica per arpa, SU4188 Vivaldi, Telemann, Bach, SU4121 Telemann, Britten ad.), harpist Kate ina Englichová and oboist Vilém Veverka sufficiently proved their outstanding performance qualities as well as informed interest in such mutually remote music worlds as the Baroque and the 20th century modernism. The present recording their first made in dues reflects more than twelve years of their performing together in concerts. The not so common combination of oboe and harp provides an endless scale of timbres and the resulting impression is marked both by frailness and confident virtuosity.

Taken from the best Debussy cycle to appear in the CD era, these repackagings gather the items that one-disc-at-a-time buyers tend to miss. Playing combines flair, care, and great musical enjoyment.

The Ulster Hall acoustic is spacious but clear.

The Japanese label Ypsilon International presents its second recording with the pianist Takahiro Yoshikawa totally devoted to Debussy. Yoshikawa plays Debussy paying close attention to every single detail through an in depth reading of the scores. Due to his extremely sensitive touch and accurate use of the pedals we can perceive a new way of interpreting the works of one of the most important composers in the history of music, even in famous pages such as: Clair de lune di Suite bergamasque or Reflets dans l'eau di Image. The recording, which has already been released in Japan, has received excellent critical and audience reviews.

Of the compilations released to mark the 150th anniversary of Claude Debussy's birth this year, this is the most treasurable. As a survey of the music of perhaps of the greatest 20th-century composer it could hardly be bettered, especially within recordings from a single label, or rather, a single group of labels, for as well as Deutsche Grammophon recordings it also includes material from Philips and Decca, which are all now part of the Universal stable.

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 02:01:55 | 289 MB
Label: Deutsche Grammophon

A French composer of piano music, opera, cantatas, ballets, and orchestral and chamber works. His most notable pieces are "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun)" (1894) and "Nocturnes" (1899). Inspired often by pictorial subjects (Monet's water impressions became "reflections in the water" for piano) and by the elusive and unnameable in nature (footsteps in the snow, still leaves, and the hypnotic, overwhelming sensations of his rare visits to the French coastline), Debussy's music develops chords, melodies, and orchestration that are connected more by a single surreal observation than by an overriding logic.

In many ways, Debussy’s piano music finds its rightful home on the harp. Apart from the distinctive textural and colouristic elements in the writing itself, we have contemporary accounts of Debussy’s piano-playing that refer to his ability to make you forget a piano even had hammers. Of course, this doesn’t allow for dreamy, “impressionistic” interpretations; rather, it makes clarity and precision absolute imperatives – which qualities we find in abundance in this recital by Xavier de Maistre and friends.
