Claude Debussy – Piano works, volume 1

Dennis Lee, piano

Despite the enduring popularity of certain orchestral, vocal and chamber works by Claude Debussy, it is his piano music for which he is most widely renowned. Not only did he enrich the repertoire with many fine scores, he was one of a select group of composers including Chopin and Liszt, who took the genre in a new direction due to his ground-breaking approach to texture, chords, shifting harmonies and the use of the pedal, among other features.
Dennis Lee is a natural pianist for Debussy and Ravel. It is a pure gem and a discovery for the serious music lover and collector.
