This recording contains some of the most popular, endearing and affectionate piano works by Claude Debussy - early works, written while still under the influence of Chopin and French romantic symbolism. Included are the Suite Bergamasque (including the popular Clair de lune), the Ballade, Danse, the early set of Images, 2 Arabesques, Danse bohémienne, Nocturne, Rêverie and others.

They are played on a gorgeous Érard grand piano of 1880, the period of composition, lending an authentic character to these beautiful performances, presenting the colours and sonorities Debussy had in mind.
