Debussy: Complete Works for Solo Piano Vol 1 (CD)

Current Stock:
Jean-Efflam Bavouzet

“…Bavouzet commands all the shading, nuance and timbral sensitivity one expects in Debussy, together with virtuoso flair and characterful spontaneity that adds welcome backbone to the composer's "hammerless" aesthetic.” - Gramophone Magazine


“Jean-Efflam Bavouzet has a wonderfully light touch, imbuing 'Les collines d'Anacapri' with a skittish exuberance, or creating delicate wisps of mist in 'Brouillards' evoking Debussy's advice to forget that the piano has hammers. The opening of 'La terrasse des audiences au clair de lune' floats languorously, captured in marvellous sound, with warm bass textures and clarity without harshness in the piano's upper registers.” - BBC Music Magazine
