BIS presents a CD box set of Noriko Ogawa's critically acclaimed recordings of Debussy's piano music.

The box is released to coincide with the start of "Reflections on Debussy": a festival led by Noriko Ogawa at Bridgewater Hall celebrating the music of Claude Debussy in his 150th anniversary year. The festival runs from January to June 2012.

"Noriko Ogawa, who took the third prize in the 1987 Leeds International Piano Competition, has made a number of very impressive recordings for BIS. This is the second in her Debussy solo piano series and she proves herself, in Bryce Morrison's words, 'a most elegant, scrupulously sensitive interpreter of "music like a dream from which one draws away the veil" (Debussy).'"

"You cannot afford to miss this "Boîte à joujoux". However many versions of "Préludes" you may have you'll not regret adding this one"
