The music of three nations – Britain, Spain and France – inspired Debussy’s Images for orchestra, which occupied him from 1905 to 1912.

Originally conceived for two pianos (Images I and II for solo piano are on 8.550253), this third set draws on several folk songs in its outer movements, the tripartite middle movement evoking in musical terms Spanish sights, sounds and fragrances.

Vivid orchestrations by both Debussy and Ravel of short piano pieces likewise embrace contrasting moods and national characters.

Volumes 1 (8570759) and 2 (8570993) in this series have been highly praised.

BBC Music Magazine

June 2010

****

“Jun Märkl persuades his orchestra to extremes of vulgarity and tenderness, which is as it should be in the extraordinary Images. They also catch the ambivalence of mood that marks these pieces...there is much here to enjoy.”

Classic FM Magazine

“In Jun Märkl’s expert hands one can immediately sense Debussy…[Märkl] magically evokes iridescent textures from which points of sound emerge like piquant sources of light on a canvas. A captivating performance enhanced by four bonus orchestrations.”
