Debussy Orchestral Recital (4 of the French composer's classic pieces in entirety - GL 5836)

£5.99

Product description

The first piece on this LP, 'La Mer', was inspired by the Debussy's obesession with the sea. It is a three-movement composition, moving from Dawn, to Noon, to the thundering storm, in its approach and, finally, climactic explosion.

Side One : La Mer :-
1) From Dawn Untill Noon on the Sea 2) The Play of the Waves 3) Dialogue of the Wind and the Sea

Stephane Mallarme was a poet friend of the French composer, and Mallarme's most famous poem, 'The Afternoon of a Faun' was the inspiration to Debussy's tone poem, 'Prelude to...'. After Debussy had shown 'Prelude to...' to Mallarme, the poet responded in kind, with a signed copy of his poem, in handwritten verses, implying that his composer friend had, indeed, rounded out his dream.
Side One : 4) Prelude A L'Apres Midi D'Un Faun

'Iberia' conjures up the classic imagery associated with Spain - colours, rhythms, fiery flamenco dances, clattering heels, castanets, nostalgic Moorish laments, etc.
Side Two : Iberia :-
1) On the High-Ways and By-Ways 2) Fragrances of the Night 3) Holiday Morning

With the four-part 'Petite Suite', Debussy - still in his early years - was probably partially inspired by some of the composers he admired: 'En Bateau' has the bacarolle-like grace of Faure ; 'Cortege' has clear Bizet influence ; 'Menuet' echoes the elegant Massenent ; and, finally, there is clearly Chabrier's verve in 'Ballet'.
Side Two : Petite Suite :-
4) En Bateau 5) Cortege 6) Menuet 7) Ballet

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) VG+/EX.
