. . . a top-notch overview of Debussy's all-too-concise output. Chief among the highlights are Pierre Boulez's performances of the orchestral music with the Cleveland Orchestra, famed for their laserlike clarity. In the piano music, Mitsuko Uchida brings a scary intensity to the Etudes, Krystian Zimerman flexes his muscles in the Preludes, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli brings the "Images" into sharp focus, and Zoltán Kocsis takes scrupulous care of the rest . . . Mischa Maisky and Martha Argerich turn in a hair-raising performance of the Cello Sonata . . . Best of all is Claudio Abbado's utterly beguiling recording of Debussy's sole opera, "Pelléas et Melisande" with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which brings Wagnerian depth to this mysterious creation.

. . . most treasurable. As a survey of the music of perhaps of the greatest 20th-century composer it could hardly be bettered . . . Many of these performances would rank among the finest Debussy recordings ever made. The piano music is wonderfully served; there's Krystian Zimerman's polished accounts of the two books of Préludes . . . jewel-like performances of "Images" and the "Children's Corner Suite" . . . lucid recordings . . . ["Pelléas et Mélisande"] comes in Claudio Abbado's refined 1991 recording with Francois Le Roux and Maria Ewing in the title roles, and José van Dam as Golaud . . . a wonderful bargain.

. . . a treasure trove . . .

. . . this 18-disc box set contains performances from several top-tier interpreters. Modern musical revolution for the price per disc of a latte.

[Pelleas et Melisande]: . . [mit den Wiener Philharmonikern und den Protagonisten vermittelt Claudio Abbado] suggestiv den Stimmungsgehalt jeder Szene und spürt jeder psychologischen Regung nach . . . Für die zwölf Etüden konnte DG auf die gefeierte Philips-Aufnahme mit Mitsuko Uchida zurückgreifen . . . Leckerbissen für Sammler sind [sieben Klavierstücke] mit dem fabelhaften Daniel Ericourt (1903 bis 1998) und das effektvolle "L'isle joyeuse" bei DG mit Friedrich Gulda . . . Debussy-Spiel in Vollendung bietet DG in den "Images" mit Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli . . .
