Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Debussy: Preludes Livres I & II / Messiaen: Regard de l'Esprit de Joie, Regard du Silence, Le Merle Bleu (Audio CD)
These performances of Debussy's Preludes are simply superhuman in their delicacy, poetry, pianistic control and recorded sound.
That they were issued nearly 45 years ago is beyond belief. The quality suggests they were made yesterday. Kars was a prince of pianists, and his loss to us in favour of the Catholic priesthood incalculable.
God be praised he at least left us these gems before his change of career. But what a talent!
