For his third volume of Debussy-explorations, pianist Michael Korstick shows once again his excitement at encountering this music as well as his ability to translate that excitement into compelling musical interpretations. The focus of this third release is the three volumes of the Piano “Images” from the years 1894, 1905 and 1907. They contain some of Debussy‘s most famous and popular piano works. In addition to these well-known collections Korstick has programmed the “Images oubliees” the “Six Epigraphes antiques” and a series of occasional pieces – which despite their “lesser status” in the composer’s catalogue, are among the most beautiful pieces Debussy wrote. Michael Korstick proves once again he is a master of tonal shading and delicate nuance; it is, in other words, as if you were listening to Debussy for the first time.
