Clive James once said that if the house was burning and he only had time to retrieve one CD, Moravec's recording of Debussy's Images etc would be it.
This release also includes works by Chopin, but the sense conveyed by James' remark remains intact: this is a recording of transcending brilliance and one that no lover of piano, of Debussy, indeed of music in general should miss.
The Debussy IS especially special. I have never before or since encountered the delicacy of Moravec's playing of Images (Book 1) and though I have several recordings of the piece, it is to this performance that I return again and again.
Remarkable, beautiful, uplifting.
