Debussy: Nocturnes, Premiere Rhapsodie, Jeux, La Mer based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Following the three Nocturnes on this disk is 8'33 of pure delight: this Deutsche Grammophone recording by Pierre Boulez conducting the Cleveland Orchestra contains Debussy's Premiere Rhapsodie. Composed as a single movement, the piece rivets your attention with the first notes that you hear. We owe Boulez a debt of gratitude for his excellent performances and recordings of 20th century music. This disk also includes Jeux and La Mer, two other Debussy favorites. Highly recommended.
