I'm afriad I have to disagree with scriabinmahler. Mr Fergus-Thompson's interpretation of Debussy's piano works is quite extraordinary and every bit as fine as can be heard by any other pianist. He exhibits such masterly tone control so important in this music. As for technique you need to listen only to Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum,(his tempo even faster than the composer's indication, but with complete clarity and balance) to appreciate his technical prowess. As an educator, he clearly has lived and breathed this music. The fact that he recorded all of it in such short period surely confirms this. The acoustics of Henry Wood Hall and a good choice of instrument make these recordings a joy to listen to. Thoroughly recommended as a "bench mark" recording.

Those who love Debussy should listen to these marvelous interpretations. I am not an expert on music so that I can explain it deeply. But as a listener who cares about composers, interpreters and interpretations I should recommend it to any one who cares for those reasons and mostly for music.

They musicality and deftness of touch of the pianist make this collection a joy to listen to. I have fallen in love with Debussy's music in a new way.

There is nothing to find wrong with this set. Perhaps it has less individual character than some others, but that's all.
