The fifth and final installment of Debussy’s complete piano works with pianist Michael Korstick. The first four volumes were highly acclaimed by critics worldwide for their new perspectives on Debussy's works. Michael Korstick is one of the most distinguished German pianists of our day. Booklet text by Debussy expert, Robert Orledge.

Once again, Michael Korstick shows us that the primary requirement for Debussy’s challenging piano music to be heard to best advantage is to stick exactly to what the composer wrote, even in his untidiest sketches which reveal great precision in detail.

People may have doubted Debussy’s ability to play all of his Etudes in 1915, but his knowledge of what the piano could and should achieve in the early twentieth century was second to none, with the possible exception of Ravel.

This is reflected in Michael Korstick's latest installment in his Debussy cycle. Over the last four years, Korstick has enchanted audiences worldwide. With this final volume, Korstick sets an expert, musical and interpretive seal on his performances.
