Jane Jones takes the time to indulge in Debussy's sublime multi-layered orchestral music.
Repertoire: Orchestral works
Artists: Cincinnatti SO/Paavo Järvi
Label: Telarc CD-80617
Moods and emotions are served by serene and sensuous music and Debussy’s orchestral works take time to reveal their beauty, but peeling away the layers is part of the experience. The Cincinnati SO adds depth and texture to confound those critics who dismiss Debussy’s ethereal, impressionistic sound as insubstantial romanticism. The rare recording of the Berceuse héroique eschews notions of nationalism in favour of a more sombre eulogy.
