This set contains Debussy's complete works for solo piano, recorded by Alain Planès between 2000 and 2006. 'Thanks to his familiarity with this repertoire, he knows that Debussyan sensuality can be achieved only by avoiding blandness' (Télérama) - 'He creates an exceptional balance between mystery and rigour, eloquence and refusal of emotionalism, transparency and vividness of texture, all held together by vigorous, keenly nuanced pianism' (Le Monde de la Musique) - 'This interpretation will delight with its sparkling blend of grace and intransigence' (Diapason).

"this is Debussy playing of a very high order, and I urge admirers of this repertoire to give it a try." Pianist Recommended
