  • About This Album

    The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

    Often regarded as the epitome of Impressionism, Debussy’s Preludes for Piano were written at the midpoint of the composer’s career, displaying an evolution in both musical technique and outlook between the two books. Both books are included here in performances by Paul Jacobs described by the New York Times as “absorbing,” and “sensuous in the most refined way.”
