  • about this album

    Composed in 1915, Claude Debussy’s piano etudes represent some of the composer's most adventurous and unconventional writing. Paul Jacobs’s recordings of these pieces garnered international renown upon their initial release; Gramophone declared they “should be heard by everyone.” This digital reissue also features En Blanc et Noir, a piece, from the same year, for two pianos, performed by Jacobs and Gilbert Kalish.
