These are wonderful recordings of Debussy's La Mer, Jeux and Prelude by Valery Gergiev and the London Symphony Orchestra on their LSO Live label from 2009/10. Gergiev has shown in his partnership with the LSO that he is not afraid to record or perform not just Russian repertoire but composers like Brahms, Ravel and Debussy as well.

The Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune has understated but beautiful playing, with a fine flute solo and Jeux is given a sparkling performance.

But the main highlight for me is La Mer, which contains moments of power and expression especially in the second movement when you can easily think of the waves of the sea on a moonlit night. The LSO strings and woodwinds are so expressive with restrained but effective brass contributing to a brilliant climax at the end of the third movement.

It ranks up there with other recordings I have including Jun Markl/Orchestre National de Lyon and Charles Dutoit/Montreal SO and Charles Munch/BSO.

Claude Debussy influenced the music of many composers in the 20th Century and it is often said that his influential Prelude marked the birth of modern music. Other delights on this recording include La mer, where the music depicts the ocean through three colourful movements and is notable for its original orchestration. The quality of this LSO recording of Debussy masterpieces is remarkable. I can think of no better way to spend an hour than to listen to Gergiev and the LSO champion the music of one of the greatest composers. Outstanding in every respect.

Always a favorite. Debussy La Mer is so relaxing and yet conjures images of the sea. This rendition does not disappoint.
