Debussy's richly evocative Estampes takes us through exotic gamelan-like sonorities from East Asia and the strumming guitars of Spain, to end amid the bracing excitement of a violent rainstorm in Normandy. Alexander Panfilov was a laureate at the Premio Jaen competition in 2016, at which Manuel Seco de Arpe's elegantly constructed and complex Anamorfosis was the mandatory work. He concludes this recital with Mussorgsky's supremely descriptive Pictures at an Exhibition, one of the great works of the Russian piano tradition.

Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt has devoted many creative energies to Bach, and it shows in this reading of Debussy favorites (and a few less common works): Hewitt's is a rather precise and tempo-consistent Debussy, light on the atmospherics but with technical agility to spare. What you'll think of this may well depend on how you see the nature of Debussy's break with the French Romantic tradition: did it involve a dryness of expression, or is the usual hazy vision the right one?

Both the works on this recording were written during wartime. Debussy’s 1915 En blanc et noir, composed during a late creative burst, is his musical response to the horrors of World War I. Messiaen’s revolutionary Visions de l’Amen from 1943, written to be performed by the composer and his teenage pupil, Yvonne Loriod, is a profound religious meditation whose emotional intensity is overwhelming. The role of the two pianos is clearly divided. Melodic and expressive elements are confined to the second piano, Messiaen’s part, whereas all that is percussion, brilliance and rhythmic development is heard in the first piano, Loriod’s part.

From the opening notes of “Brouillards,” it’s clear why Alexander Melnikov has chosen one of his own historic pianos for Debussy’s second volume of Préludes. His French Erard piano, from around 1885, possesses a chiming bass, a delicate yet resonant upper register, and a warm middle. It’s ideal for music that so often requires a fine brushstroke. Melnikov obliges, playing with exquisite restraint, control, and voicing as he whisks us to sun-drenched, humid India, the world of illustrator Arthur Rackham’s fairies and to a firework display, full of brilliant, nervous tension. Melnikov is joined by Olga Pashchenko for a thrilling performance of Debussy’s arrangement for four hands of his orchestral suite La Mer.

Acuti e irriverenti, severi fino alla stroncatura o talmente ironici da risultare dissacranti, gli scritti critici di Claude Debussy costituiscono una delle testimonianze più sfrontate mai offerte dalla critica musicale e una fucina eclettica di riflessioni sulla scena contemporanea e sulle indimenticabili opere del passato. Presentati talvolta in forma di conversazione con un certo Monsieur Croche, ineffabile alter ego dell'autore, e ospitati a partire dal 1901 sulle riviste culturali e sui quotidiani più autorevoli del Novecento - "La Revue blanche", "Gil Blas", "Musique" e "Le Figaro" -, gli articoli e le recensioni di Debussy rivelano, nel loro tono sublimemente anarchico, il lato più intimo del compositore francese e, insieme, gli immaginari sonori che ne hanno nutrito la profonda sensibilità. Da queste pagine traspaiono la sua insofferenza per artisti come Gluck, Berlioz e Saint-Saéns e l'amore incondizionato per Ra-meau, Musorgskij e Cari Maria von Weber..

A century after his death on 25 March 1918, many harmonia mundi artists are eager to pay tribute to Claude Debussy, the magician of melody and timbre, the great ‘colourist’ and father of modern music. Alexander Melnikov is among those pianists increasingly committed to playing the works of the past on the instruments on which they came into being (or could have done so). And so it is on a ‘period’ piano (an Érard piano ) that he breathes new life into Book II of the Préludes, but also – with the help of Olga Pashchenko – the extraordinary transcription of La Mer by the composer himself.

2018 marks the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy. Considered by some to be the father of modern music, Debussy's highly original system of harmony and musical structure expressed in many respects the ideals to which the Impressionist and Symbolist movements of his time aspired. Alongside two shimmering masterpieces, La Mer and the celebrated Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, the Symphonic Fragments from Le Martyre de saint Sébastien receive loving attention from the distinguished musicians of the Philharmonia Orchestra - making their harmonia mundi label début - conducted by Maestro Pablo Heras-Casado.
