After an earlier album devoted to the intangible links between Chopin and Debussy, Javier Perianes returns to Debussy's Préludes, which are among his favorite works. His recording of Book I, presented here in its entirety alongside the sublime Estampes, emphasizes the colorful, programmatic nature of these works.

REVIEW:

Playing a modern Steinway, Perianes grabs every benefit possible from the instrument’s vast color range, sustaining pedal, and seamless action. As he navigates a poetic path through these 12 brilliant, sometimes shadowy, miniatures, you realise what Debussy meant when he described his goal as “an emotional transposition of what is ‘invisible’.

– Sunday Times (UK)

Whereas Alexander Melnikov's Preludes, Book II, on an earlier release in this Debussy series plays a period Érard piano, Perianes, opting for a modern Steinway, packs in much color and detail.
