By Mart TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 July 2007
Format: Audio CD
This Naxos double CD is effectively a reworking of the original single CD release `The Best of Debussy', expanded to include more of the composer's music then attractively packaged with new artwork and a card slip-case cover showing an amusing caricature of the composer.

As with any `Best Of' compilation much of the composer's work will inevitably be omitted - Debussy incidentally wrote around 227 works so the 23 pieces on these CDs represent only a small proportion of his lifetime works. There are however over 2 and a half hours of music here to be enjoyed and it's a good cross-section of Debussy's music.

The sleeve notes are helpful for those wanting a little more than these highlights, for they provide recommended further listening (all Naxos label CD's of course!). For those who do not wish to delve any deeper and are content with these types of collections there are a number of other Naxos `Very Best Of' releases featuring other composers, which can form the basis of a very respectable and comprehensive classical music CD library.

I think Debussy remains one of today's slightly under-rated composers. He was one of the most innovative and creative figures of the late 19th century and played a major role in the development of the romantic style during this period. This collection is a good starting point, but Debussy I think deserves a little further listing than this compilation. Listen to CD 1 track 8, `La fille aux cheveux de lin (The girl with the flaxen hair) for an example of Debussy's beautifully mysterious solo piano work. There is much more of this type of work available and it would be a shame not to experience it.

In summary, an informative and attractively presented mid-priced CD.

This collection of Debussy classics has been a welcome addition in my classroom, particularly with my more challenging classes. The classical music has a very calming influence which is wonderful.

I liked the selection of Debussy's work which is just right for someone new to him. This would make a good present for someone coming fresh to this music.
