Chill out with two collections of beautiful tranquil music. First listen to the best-selling CD from Naxos containing some of Debussy´s most beautiful music, then play some of hisunmissable favourites such as ´Clair de lune´, ´La fille aux cheveux de lin´ and´Arabesque No.1´ on piano.
Dating from the last decade of the 19th century, Pelléas et Mélisande points the way into the 20th century. The score is hauntingly beautiful, but there is more to the work than shifting panels of elusive, impressionistic sound. Debussy retains the text of Maeterlinck’s play, and the linguistic subtleties of the French text are matched perfectly by the musical detail. Taking a little time to explore the romantic, elusive world of this opera is particularly rewarding.
