The remarkable Turkish pianist Fazıl Say (born 1970) here offers us a suitably remarkable album, recorded in 2016 in the Great Hall of the Salzburg Mozarteum and given over to the Premier Livre of Debussy's Préludes – 1910 – which he sets up in against the six Gnossiennes by Satie (1890 for the first three, 1897 for the latter three) and to the pieces which made him famous, the Gymnopédies of 1888. It's quite stunning to hear these works and to reflect on the fact that Satie's works actually come before Debussy's Préludes – by almost two decades, in fact. It is hardly surprising the Satie has been thought a real avant-gardist both in his day and by minimalists today. Considering how different these two were, it was natural that they should have been friends, especially given Debussy's tendency towards jealousy of his contemporaries... But it is impossible to be jealous of a kind, bubbly soul like Satie. Say brings immense tenderness to these two opposite poles – poles so far removed that they almost join back up. © SM/Qobuz

The cream of the crop of French musicians—well, okay, Swiss for the flautist Emmanuel Pahud—come together to bring us a sumptuous album devoted to Debussy’s chamber music: Edgar Moreau for the Sonata for cello and piano, Renaud Capuçon for the Sonata for violin and piano, Gérard Caussé, Marie-Pierre Anglamet and Emmanuel Pahud for the Sonata for flute, viola and harp (these three very belated sonatas are the only ones that the composer had time to finish in his planned series of “Six sonatas for various instruments by Claude Debussy, French musician”). We find the same Emmanuel Pahud performing solo for Syrinx, and the album closes with the Trio for violin, piano and cello written in a still very classic—or even conventional—style and architecture (the shadows of Franck, Massenet and Fauré undoubtedly loom) in 1880, when the composer was residing in Florence with the von Meck family. This last work was released only a hundred years later… On the piano in all the collective works, you’ll find Bertrand Chamayou. © SM

On the dawn of his fortieth birthday, the Spanish pianist Javier Perianes should be more than proud of his dazzling career. Among the places that regularly welcome him we find Carnegie Hall, the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Philharmonie de Paris, Gewandhaus in Leipzig and La Roque d'Anthéron. Barenboim and Larrocha were his masters. He is particularly fond of the great French repertoire of Debussy and Ravel, though he never focuses solely on them - his previous recordings have taken him to Beethoven, Mompou, Schubert or Granados. Here, he remains in the French world with Debussy's Book I from Preludes and his three Estampes, the composer’s piano masterpiece, which Perianes distils with immense instrumental colour, breathing, contrasts and a magnificent violence that counterbalances a crystal clearness at every moment, as requested by the score. © SM/Qobuz

Emmanuel Krivine’s sympathy for French music has been well documented for a while, as evidenced by his recordings with the Orchestre National de Lyon and the Philharmonie Luxembourg, two symphonic orchestras he beautifully directed. Presented here is his first album with the Orchestre National de France, where he has been art director since 2017. La Mer and Images pour orchestre make up, along with Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Jeux and the three Nocturnes, the backbone of Debussy’s orchestral work. It presents an imaginary realm with distant prospects, a very refined harmony and an exploration of sounds that often results in difficult issues for conductors, who are at risk of drowning in their search for colour to the detriment of the overall structure, because as impressionist as it may be, Debussy’s music is nonetheless written with tremendous rigour. But Emmanuel Krivine and his musicians skilfully avoid these pitfalls and favour lyricism with an orchestral opulence of stunning sensuality. © François Hudry/Qobuz

A brainchild of two veterans of the Philips label – including Tom Deacon, the instigator of the phenomenal "The Great Pianists of the 20th Century" in the 1990s – this re-release of the recordings of the complete works of Debussy played by Hans Henkemans for the Dutch label from 1951 to 1957 will remain one of the most beautiful celebrations marking this centenary year. These historic recordings, which have yet to be released as a single collection, were made at about the same time as the recordings by Marcelle Meyer (Les Discophiles Français), Albert Ferber (Ducretet-Thomson), Walter Gieseking (His Master's Voice), Menahem Pressler (MGM Records) and Reine Gianoli (Westminster): but they stand out from their contemporaries for their concern for textual precision and above all a complete absence of impressionism. The composer Hans Henkeman, born in 1913 and a major figure in the musical life of the Netherlands from the 1930s to the 1960s, was mainly interested in the range of the French composer's rhythmic vocabulary. Very often, and in particular in modern cycles (Estampes, Images, Children's Corner), the rhythm seems to overshadow the purely harmonic aspect, even if Hans Henkemans' naturally clear and limpid piano playing style reproduces these elements of Debussy's musical world without adulteration. Reflets dans l’eau stuns with its rapid tempo, its somewhat pithy expressiveness, but also with its fiery surges, its powerful accents in the fortissimo passages: there is also a freedom, a great broadness, in Henkemans' piano, which lends an almost austere aspect to the music's overall rhythmic stature. Moreover, Cloches à travers les feuilles, the greatest and also the most difficult of the Images pour piano, surprises the listener as much for its variations at a fulgurating tempo as for the great clarity of its articulation. But for many, the best of Henkemans' treasury of Debussy remains the 12 Etudes, where, naturally, his strict and utterly original playing style is perfectly matched to this mature, extreme cycle. Few musicians have brought such speed to Pour les degrés chromatiques or such a rage to Pour les agréments. Stunning! As Tom Deacon quite rightly puts it in the liner notes, "these interpretations can and should be seen as the forerunners of the modern approach to Debussy represented by the late Charles Rosen, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, and even the young Michel Béroff as well as by the conductor Pierre Boulez, all of whom worked to strip the carbuncles from Debussy's music that are simply the result of the normal wear and tear of successive generations of mis(or should I say over-)interpretations. This re-release should really set the record straight. © PYL/Qobuz

Gordon Fergus-Thompson has been praised for his interpretation of French "Impressionist" music, with much of his reputation based on this collection of Debussy's Complete Piano Music, and deservedly so. He achieves a clarity of sound that allows you to note details in the music, such as in the Toccata of Pour le Piano and Poissons d'or, but his performances are still richly colorful and marked with smoothness and suppleness. There is a restraint in the forte passages and in dramatic moments, but it doesn't feel forced, and there are still dynamic contrasts between loud and soft, between calm and animated. The Preludes, Book 1, are an excellent example of those contrasts, ranging from the tumult of Ce qu'a vu le vent d'Ouest to the gracefulness of La fille aux cheveux de lin. He takes the pieces in the Children's Corner and the waltz La plus que lente faster than many pianists, and also in the Children's Corner, he applies a little too much sophistication and coloration. Other than that, however, Fergus-Thompson seems to have a natural control over every touch of key or pedal that makes all of Debussy's pieces sound technically easy and musically organic. This set could easily be a benchmark by which you judge other performances. © TiVo
