. . . [this new set is, on balance,] the one to have, with Debussy's operatic masterpiece "Pelléas et Mélisande" from Claudio Abbado on CD and Pierre Boulez on DVD. No contest. Also, DG's pianists (Pollini, Michelangeli and Aimard) are superior . . .

. . . [the Violin Sonata with Anne Sofie Mutter and Lambert Orkis]: the execution, the tone, and definitely the sound is absolutely superb . . . Pretty much same goes for the Cello Sonata with Sol Gabetta and Hélène Grimaud . . . The Nocturnes for Orchestra are riveting with Daniel Barenboim and the Orchestre de Paris . . . the Universal performances are generally more modern and perhaps a touch more interesting [than others] . . . Anyone basically wanting a very comprehensive Debussy collection with a weighing of interest toward the more famous works is better off with the DG box . . .

. . . on balance, DG's performances of the great classics win out, especially with two superb contrasting accounts of the opera Pelléas et Mélisande, Abbado¿s sumptuous version on CD, and the great Boulez/Peter Stein WNO production on DVD.

. . . [ce nouveau coffret "Debussy" contient] des interprétations plus que vénérables, -- indispensables, les facettes de la modernité de Debussy . . .
