The second volume in Roge’s first complete Debussy cycle has been eagerly awaited, following the highly acclaimed Preludes for which reviews have been outstanding:
“ A superb disc “ (Rob Cowan, Independent *****), Record of the Year (Stephen Pettit, Sunday Times), “Close to a definitive interpretation” (BBC CD Review) “sets a new benchmark in French music -Top 100 Recordings of all time” (Evening Standard).
Pascal Rogé is today’s greatest ambassador and stylist in French piano music. Winner of two Gramophone Awards, his name is synonymous over many years with the finest in French piano playing, both in concert and on disc for Decca, and now in Debussy for ONYX/Roge Edition.
This second volume includes many of the most well-known short pieces – in particular the perennial favourite Clair de Lune, the Golliwogg’s Cake-Walk and Le Petit Nègre.
