. . . Pressler's latest effort is a typically stunning display of virtuosity and sensitivity, rendered all the more impressive by the sheer longevity of his career . . . these French crowd-pleasers are given new interpretations by one pianist who has certainly heard his fair share of them over the years.

  • Menahem Pressler - Debussy - Clair de lune (Trailer)

    For over half a century, from 1955 to 2008, Menahem Pressler was the pianist of the legendary Beaux Arts Trio. Having devoted his energies to his solo career for the last ten years, he is now, at the age of 94, releasing his first solo album on Deutsche Grammophon. Pressler’s chosen programme of works by Debussy, Fauré and Ravel is his tribute to composers whose music has played a vital role in the development of his career ever since he was awarded First Prize at the 1946 Debussy Competition in San Francisco.
