Product Description & Reviews

Debussy's Etudes were his last works for the piano. Moving away from the pictorial imagery that characterized most of his earlier piano music, Debussy began to compose more abstract pieces based on technical and intellectual problems. These pieces aren't as immediately appealing as his earlier piano works, and it takes a pianist like Garrick Ohlsson to make them palatable. He plays with virtuosity, intellectual rigor, and pianistic color that make this music fascinating, even if never moving. Only Mitsuko Uchida (Philips 422 412-2) has given a comparably interesting performance on CD, and Ohlsson has the bonus of the well-played and popular Suite Bergamasque to tip the balance in his favor. --Leslie Gerber
