Debussy: Images, Jeux & La plus que lente

“He had a genius for sensing the essential quality of a particular instrument’s voice and creating for it evocative solos that have become emblematic. His sense of unusual blends of different instruments was also original and highly demanding. In fact, his orchestral music, especially the later orchestral works like those on this album, presents some of the greatest challenges in the whole repertory for both conductor and instrumentalists.”
–MICHAEL TILSON THOMAS

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony release an all-Debussy album featuring Images pour orchestre, Jeux, and La plus que lente. This album brings the vivid landscapes of Images, impassioned playfulness of Jeux, and the sensuality of La plus que lente together in a collection that exquisitely illustrates the French composer’s mastery with orchestration. Presented by SFS Media in premium audio hybrid SACD as well as studio master-quality download.
