If you are interested in a one-stop exposure to Debussy this set will serve you well. If you are a collector this will probably fill in some minor gaps in your Debussy shelf. This an outstanding collection of very good to excellent recordings showcasing Debussy's major works. You are likely to pursue other interpretations in addition to the ones you will find here if you become enchanted with Debussy's world of music. One of the advantages with these types of collection is that one gets exposed to music one otherwise would not have. E.g. I had never heard "Le Martyre de Saint-Sébastien" before and became quite enchanted with Ansermet's rendition of the piece. Magical and sublime music making!
In either case this is a bargain you cannot miss for a price of a little less than three dollars per disc. Much to explore and highly recommended!
