Product description

Product Description

This limited-edition boxed set is for all who would like to hear more from the composer of famous works like Clair de lune and La Mer. The collection starts with a selection of popular orchestral pieces such as La Mer, Nocturnes, Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune in legendary interpretations by Charles Munch, Leonard Bernstein and Pierre Boulez. Perhaps best-known for his beautiful compositions for the piano, Debussy’s complete music for piano featuring Robert and Gaby Casadesus, Glenn Gould, Philippe Entremont, Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubinstein and others is included on discs four-nine. The pieces for piano four hands are contributed by Gaby and Robert Casadesus while the chamber-music collections feature artists such as André Previn, James Levine, Steven Isserlis, Lynn Harrell, Pierre Rampal, James Galway, Isaac Stern and the Tokyo String Quartet.
The two CDs of songs include the complete Chansons de Bilitis, Ariettes oubliées and Fêtes galantes (Set 1) by Frederica von Stade as well as the recital recorded by Dawn Upshaw and James Levine. After Pelléas et Mélisande on three CDs, conducted by Pierre Boulez, and Le Martyre de saint Sébastien by Leonard Bernstein, The Claude Debussy Collection becomes a real treasure trove for collectors. CD 17 comprises famous Debussy encores in arrangements for flute, clarinet and violin featuring artists like James Galway and Jascha Heifetz. CD 18 is the limited special edition of Xavier de Maistre’s original album Nuits d’Étoiles--Harp music by Claude Debussy.
Along with Maurice Ravel, French composer Claude-Achille Debussy (22 August 1862 – 25 March 1918) was one of the most prominent figures working within the field of Impressionist music. He is among the most important of all French composers and a central figure in European music around the turn of the last century. Noted for its sensory component and for rarely forming around one key or pitch, Debussy’s music often reflects the activities and turbulence in his life and virtually defines the transition from late-Romantic to 20th-century modernist music.
