Format: Audio CD
Gordon Fergus-Thompson works wonder with the well known piece like Clair de Lune, Arabesque and Reverie, and breathes new life into the music by his keen sense of tonal colours and delicacy. When it comes to impressionist music, no pianists can match Richter, who played Clair de Lune, Pavane or miroirs like a miracle, but Fergus-Thompson creats his own unique soundscape.

He is one of very few pianists alive who pay careful attention to how a note produced on the instrument decays and merges with other notes, while most of pianist nowadays focus mostly on starting point of the sound. That's a secret of the richness of colours and expression in his pianism.

He is often criticised for lack of technical prowess, compared to past masters like Gieseking or Michelangeli, but I can not detect even a hint of technical weakness or instability in this set. This is simply a different and highly personal interpretation, and it is a shame to miss out this magical music making simply because it is different from the mainstream interpretation.

This boxed set of Debussy's piano music performed admirably by Gordon Fergus Thompson is deserving of a place within anyone's collection .The set comprises of 4 discs (each of which last over 70+ minutes in duration and each of which has it's own individual hard plastic CD case)and an informative accompanying booklet.All are contained inside a green cardboard case.The overall package is both functional, robust and aesthetically pleasing and also quite 'classy' .Previous reviewers have told of the high standard of musicianship and ,of course, the superb compositions here and I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiments that they have expressed .

My own personal favourites include Suite Bergamasque (1905) which contains 'Clair de Lune' from disc 1 'and 'Masques'(1904)from disc 3.The latter is very fresh and modern sounding whilst the former is a pure ,timeless classic !Without reservation I rate this CD set as 5 stars out of 5 .If you enjoy the music of Claude Debussy and you also appreciate the warm sound of accomplished and sympathetic piano playing then I think that you will thoroughly enjoy this fine collection . Happy listening !

There are some pianists who impress with their intellectual rigour, and there are some who take the breath away with sheer technical skill. The best of all refuse to point to themselves, instead they break down the division between performer and audience, and invite the listener into the music.

Gordon Fergus-Thompson is such a pianist. Listening to these CDs is like being at an exhibition of Monet and Renoir paintings, and having figures in them reach out a hand and invite you into the scenes, into the light, into what the painters experienced and fleshed out with paint on the canvas. Here the gift he gives the listener is the gift of being taken right into the inspiration of this music. Come and look down on those Reflections in the Water, come play amongst the dancing snowflakes, come look up at the light of the moon.

These are some of the best recordings of Piano music I have ever heard. And at this price? Snap them up and wallow in them.

This is, along the Uchida recording of the Études, my favourite Debussy piano music album. The fact that he gives you the complete piano output of the composer is even more magnificent in it's value. It is always tough for a performer to sound fresh throughout such an ambitious set, but I believe Fergus-Thompson achieves as close to the finest set of these works as can be hoped for. Put the preludes on and start your fantastical day dreaming.

I agree with the other two reviews posted here: the performance and recording are very good, and suit the "impressionistic" nature of Debussy's piano work very well. Considering that you get 4 CDs' worth in the package, each with between 70 and 80 minutes' playing time, this is very good value for money as well. If you like Debussy's music you can't really go wrong with this compilation.
