Saskia Giorgini presents Images, containing some of Claude Debussy’s most colourful piano works. Starting with tuneful early works such as the Danse (Tarantelle styrienne) and Deux Arabesques, Giorgini gradually works towards later, more ambitious pieces such as the Estampes and the two sets of Images, from which the album derives its name. Debussy’s music has always held an enormous attraction to Giorgini, and this album is the result of a years-long search to bring these mesmerising musical pictures to life. With her solo Liszt recordings, Giorgini has demonstrated a masterful touché and unique sense of colour, which makes Debussy’s music an obvious next step.

Saskia Giorgini is one of the most promising pianists of her generation, has won several competitions and is hailed for her technical command and the beauty and poetry of her sound. Her recording of Liszt’s Harmonies poétiques et religieuses (2021) received a Diapason d’or, while BBC Music Magazine praised her “formidable technical ability, matched by the architectural sense, harmonic sensibility and coloristic range”, and Gramophone lauded her “masterful authority”. Her second Liszt album Consolations (2023) was crowned with a Diapason d’or and elected Gramophone Critics’ Choice 2023 by two different critics. She also released Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin (2020) and Respighi Songs (2021) – both with Ian Bostridge – on Pentatone, and plans to add two more recordings to her Liszt series on the label.
