Celebration of Debussy

Impressions:  The Sound of Debussy is a 3 CD set from Warner Classics, an enticing sampler of  Warner’s release of the entirety of  Debussy’s surviving corpus—Warner’s Claude Debussy:  The Complete Works, released this year in at the centenary of his death, celebrating his rich creative output.

Warner Classics has created a definitive release of all his know works, including six pieces in world-premiere recordings made especially for this edition. The collection was compiled in collaboration with renowned Debussy expert Denis Herlin (Editor-in-Chief of the complete critical edition of Debussy’s music for Durand, the composer’s publisher).  The performing artists include Martha Argerich, Itzhak Perlman, Yehudi Menuhin, Daniel Barenboim, Kent Nagano and Sir Simon Rattle, among others.  Additionally, there are recordings of Debussy himself performing his piano music.

Impressions is a 3 CD subset of the larger Complete Works, and is offered this month courtesy of Warner Classics; all you need to do to enter is to fill out the form here:  Register To Win.
