5.0 out of 5 stars PREVIOUS REVIEW IS UTTER NONSENSE! 16 Nov 2010
By owat322
Format:Audio CD
Werner Haas is probably the greatest performer of Debussy's piano music of all time. His recordings are of an almost Gouldian technical brilliance and yet totally successful at incorporating the profundity of the composer's great masterpieces. These recordings have never been bettered and stand as a magnificent counterpart along with Haas's cycle of the complete Ravel piano works - also on Philips. Supreme playing of some of the most interesting music in the repertoire - Haas is simply the definitive version!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Debussy from an underrated pianist 13 Sep 2000
By "gnox" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this set because it included most of the pieces missing from my Debussy piano collection, and the Penguin Guide rated it fairly high. I've been listening to it frequently ever since and can only wonder why Haas is rarely mentioned alongside other great Debussians like Gilels, Arrau, Roge et al. The Philips sound is clean and full and these performances, especially of the Etudes, leave nothing to be desired. No dreamy indulgence here, just penetrating exploration of Debussy's unique tonal world. At this price, the complete duo-piano music (in which Haas is joined by Noel Lee) is a bonus! Don't hesitate on this one, even if it duplicates some other Debussy performances you own -- Debussy's music is so subtle that an alternative performance is virtually a new piece of music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly wonderful: Haass plays Debussy 5 Nov 2008
By Carlton II - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this CD specifically for the Six Antique Epigraphs, which are performed beautifully. What remarkable rhythmic and tonal subtleties inherent in these virtually unknown pieces. The Petite Suite, famous for its first offering "En bateau", is also well delivered by Haas. Two works even more obscure that I found irresistible are the Marche ecossaise and Lindaraja. The latter has echoes of the Soiree dans Grenade of Estampes, while the former is a brilliant work played to perfection by Haas.
Those pieces aside, this double CD contains Debussy's 12 Etudes, La plus que lente, Suite bergamasque, the Tarantelle styrienne, Valse romantique, and the always pleasing Hommage to Haydn. Haas excels in this works. He transcends the technical challenges and lets the listener dwell on the magical images conjured by Debussy. I recommend this CD to any fan of the great French composer.

3.0 out of 5 stars The low price is an attraction, but... 28 April 2000
By Chin-Tser Huang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this 2-CD set because it was onsale..... Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed when I played it. The selection itself is good, it contains the complete Etudes, En blanc et noir, and some other not-so-famous works. However, the performance is no match to the scope. You know that it was played in accordance with the composition, but beyond this you don't feel touched by the playing. I am still enchanted by Debussy's unique style, and will still buy CDs of his music, however I might look for something by other performers.
