The latest release in Michael Tilson Thomas' and the San Francisco Symphony's award-winning discography features Debussy's vivid Images and playful Jeux, alongside the exquisite miniature La Plus Que Lente.

"Right from the start of my musical life, Debussy's music captivated me," states Michael Tilson Thomas. With the San Francisco Symphony he shares his fascination in an all-Debussy collection that exquisitely illustrates the composer's mastery with orchestration - the vivid landscapes of Images, impassioned playfulness of Jeux, and the sensuality of La plus que lente. Presented by SFS Media in premium audio hybrid SACD.

BBC Music Magazine

Christmas 2016

****

“This is a delicious triptych of Debussy’s mature orchestral works…Tilson Thomas has a long and illustrious pedigree in Debussy, and it shows in the control and care taken over nuances of texture while keeping sight of the whole…each interlocking phrase and brush of colour can be heard emerging from the San Francisco Symphony, aided by the detailed, yet natural surround sound”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2016

“Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco players are compelling in Images, which comes across with brilliance, swagger, suppleness and, in ‘Les parfums de la nuit’, suggestive exoticism. La plus que lente, with its tangy cimbalom and its tinges of nostalgia and ebullience, makes for a beguiling envoi”

The Guardian

8th December 2016

*****

“Together they produce Debussy playing of intense colour, using a palette that never seems remotely wishy-washy or lazily “impressionistic”, but is founded on rhythmic precision and exact textural balance...A gorgeous disc.”
