Admired pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard is a virtuoso of Debussy’s compositions. Released in commemoration of the composer’s 150th birthday, the work highlights the pianist’s profound understanding for the music of Claude Debussy. Aimard delivers riveting interpretations of the complete cycle of both books of Preludes. Aimard describes performing these masterworks as not only an extraordinary experience but also an edifying one. Absolutely essential.

Reviews
"Aimard's accounts of the 24 pieces are technically impeccable, whether articulating every rhythmic detail in La Danse de Puck, or perfectly layering the chordal accumulations of La Cathédrale Engloutie." - Andrew Clements, The Guardian
