Info for Debussy: La mer, Ibéria, Images & 6 Épigraphes antiques



Released in the year of Claude Debussys death centenary, this album demonstrates the exceptional harmonic and coloristic richness of his music. The centerpiece of the album is La Mer (1903-1905), a musical realization of the composers sincere devotion to the sea that revolutionized orchestral composition in the early twentieth-century. Ibéria takes the listener on a trip to Spain, whereas the Six Épigraphes antiques (1914), here performed in the orchestration of Rudolf Escher, evoke ancient Greece and Egypt. The biggest novelty on this album is Colin Matthews new, lush orchestration of Images. Book 1 (1901-1905), one of Debussys most-cherished piano works. With this Debussy collection, the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg and its Music Director Gustavo Gimeno continue their acclaimed PENTATONE series of composer portraits that already featured monographs of Shostakovich, Bruckner, Ravel, Mahler and Stravinsky.
