This Naxos CD is volume one of five featuring the complete piano music of Debussy. It was recorded in late 1994 in Paris by the French-American François-Joël Thiollier and, despite others comments, I think the sound quality is fine, especially if you turn the volume up a little more than usual. Thiollier is, compared to other recordings I have, such as Kocsis Debussy: Piano Music or Thibaudet Debussy: Complete Works for Solo Piano Vol.2 - Images, Etudes, for example, "freer" in the execution of the "dreamier" pieces on this disc. He's perhaps a little stiffer in the dance-oriented pieces, but I find Thiollier immensely exciting in these early Debussy pieces.

The CD contains piano music Debussy wrote prior to 1901 and we are given "Suite bergamasque", "Nocturne", "Danse bohémienne", "Rêverie", "Mazurka", "Arabesqe 1 & 2", "Valse romantique", "Ballade", "Danse", and the "Suite: Pour le piano", first performed in 1904.

Aside from his Naxos Debussy recordings, Thoillier has a seemingly small discography, with some excellent Ravel on Naxos and a very hard-to-find set of Rachmaninov on RCA, which I was lucky to find a while ago Rachmaninov - Piano Works when it was still available for reasonable prices! Do give this inexpensive CD a try, as I hope you will agree that François-Joël Thiollier is a much under-rated pianist.

this vol.1 Naxos CD (one of five) featuring the complete piano music of Debussy. It was recorded in late 1994 in comparative unknown pianist François-Joël Thiollier and, despite others review comments here on amazon, I think the sound quality is fine if rather low in volume. just turn it up a little. The CD contains piano music Debussy "Suite bergamasque" (which yes contains "clair de Lune"), "Nocturne", the quite rare "Danse bohémienne", a lovely "Rêverie", "Mazurka", "Arabesqe 1 & 2", "Valse romantique", "Ballade", "Danse", and the "Suite: Pour le piano", first performed in 1904.

Thiollier in these early Debussy pieces offers very enjoyable, quite "loose" almost jazzy playing in this marvellous evocative music. Comparison with Michelangeli and Dino Caino (both DG label) and Tirimo (on Regis) makes Thiollier a winning interpreter, with a more relaxed playing style and greater freedom of phrasing with often slightly slower tempi to very enjoyable effect. only the final two tracks in this cd from Pour le Piano: the toccata and sarabande jarr with over exuberant extrovert playing lacking finesse. a slight shame on an otherwise excellent cd full of languid, relaxing but also otherworldly piano music far ahead of the prettified parlour music of Chopin et al. this naxos cd vol. 1 is thoroughly recommended as a fine first cd to Debussy's magical piano music.

This set "gets the job done" but the recording quality is quite poor, and the pieces appear to be played with a minimum of enthusiasm, the piano also has a rather "hard" tinny sound that doesn't really suit the music. Nothing wrong with the music itself, but there are other, far superior, releases of the same music available on this site.

The other volumes on this set suffer from the same problems as well.

Such a pity but the recording quality isn't up to scratch, it's full of noise and recorded very low. I wish I could return it.
