About

Debussy and Caplet... this well-known pairing brings together master and disciple in a shared aesthetic.

The Debussy Quartet had long wanted to re-record the Quartet by the composer whose name they bear. Here, then, is a sensitive reading that straightaway joins the major versions. For the Danses, they accompany the great Marielle Nordmann.

And we again find Marielle Nordmann for Caplet’s masterpiece, the Conte fantastique (after Poe), along with the lesser-known Prières sung by Françoise Masset.

It is clear that we have here an exceptionally fine CD, to take its place alongside the Lekeu anthology recorded for Timpani four years ago.
