Ji Liu (piano)

“Liu opens with a meticulously articulated yet rather earthbound Mendelssohn/Rachmaninov Scherzo...[He] saves his most imaginative and emotionally engaged piano-playing for Debussy's Suite bergamasque. He paints the 'Prelude' in broad, generous brush strokes and brings a welcome acerbic edge to the 'Menuet' and 'Passepied' that many pianist prettify to a fault.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2014

Angela Hewitt’s previous forays into the French repertoire have been praised for their ‘tenderness, Gallic wit, verve, and—the most important ingredient of all—charm’. These qualities are very much to the fore in this new disc of Debussy featuring some of the composer’s most sunlit, delightful and popular works.

Children’s Corner was written for Debussy’s beloved daughter (though not, as Hewitt explains, for her to play immediately). Hewitt embraces the music’s wit, artful references and gentle beauty. The atmospheric Suite bergamasque includes the famous ‘Clair de lune’. Also included are the tragic Masques and gorgeously exuberant L’isle joyeuse. Hewitt and Debussy are a perfect match.

“Hewitt’s spectrum of touch, her fluency and sense of colour are deployed with equal enchantment in the first of the two arabesques, her lightness, rhythmic precision and varieties of tonal weight making the second arabesque into a glistening, fanciful filigree...Hewitt brilliantly and sensitively points up the traits that lend the music such distinctive character and evocative presence, not least in an account of “L’Isle joyeuse” that is pure, ravishing radiance.” The Telegraph, 5th October 2012 *****

“There's not a trace of the "impressionistic" about her treatment of any of them: this is Debussy portrayed in clean, bright colours and sharply focused detail, with every rhythm precisely etched...it's undeniably high-class playing, even when you don't agree with some of its details.” The Guardian, 4th October 2012 ****

“This is one of the better offerings for Debussy's 150th anniversary...This generously filled disc finds Hewitt utterly persuasive in the three suites at its heart...Hyperion caputres the sound marvellously. Hewitt has the knack of noticing details without letting them detract from the musical flow...Special mention should be made of 'Clair de lune': it is quite an achievement for its lyrical beauty to be heard afresh.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2012 *****

“Hewitt has put together an ideal introduction to Debussy, but it’s one that can be enjoyed equally by experienced listeners – thanks to the artless touch and precise colours the Canadian pianist brings to each piece.” Financial Times, 27th October 2012 ****

Beau Soir

Diana Damrau (soprano)


“De Maistre's playing throughout is both robust and delicate; his ability to recall the percussiveness of the piano when necessary… is most impressive. Elsewhere, finely cascading scales and glassy, rippling figurations are offset by sensitively brushed chords...Xavier de Maistre is a virtuoso of the highest order, profoundly musical and capable of realising a remarkable range of nuance” Gramophone Magazine, August 2008

“In many ways, Debussy's piano music finds its rightful home on the harp. Apart from the distinctive textural and colouristic elements in the writing itself, we have contemporary accounts of Debussy's piano-playing that refer to his ability to make you forget a piano even had hammers.
Of course, this doesn't allow for dreamy, 'impressionistic' interpretations; rather, it makes clarity and precision absolute imperatives – which qualities we find in abundance in this recital by Xavier de Maistre and friends.
Perhaps realising that you can have too much of a good thing, de Maistre has chosen to include among the many solo works here a selection of mélodies and the two Danses for harp and strings.
All, with the exception of the Danses and the Deux Arabesques, were transcribed by de Maistre himself.

Soprano Diana Damrau is broadly expressive in the mélodies, if occasionally strident in tone; her 'Mandoline' is suffused with a playful urgency that contrasts nicely with the earnestness of 'Le lilas'. Some of de Maistre's colleagues from the Vienna Philharmonic join him in the two dances; the playing is bold and carefree, the well judged crescendo in the Danse profane a delightful way to end this magical disc.”
