Pascal Roge has always seemed to me the most subtle of pianists. He doesn't "shout" at the piano, instead suffusing the music with a beguilingly understated quality which ultimately makes for very moving listening.
His Debussy set for Decca is a fine example of this. Roge captures the essences of Debussy with great skill, whether wistful, playful or dramatic. His playing of the Preludes, Book One is quite lovely, displaying that persuasive yet unforced power which he brings to the French piano repetoire. He produces wonderful interpretations of Images, one of Debussy's most "impressionistic" piano works, and brings heaps of charm and introspection to Children's Corner. All in all, a superb set, played with great wit and feeling.
