Prelude a'apres-midi d'faune.
Anima Eterna Brugge, Jos van Immerseel.
I cannot say that I have ever heard it better as on this CD. Such a myriad of details coming out of this state of the art recording, that I am utterly surprised by what is all hidden in other performances, and what Immerseel conjures up out of his orchestra. As for the interpretations of these well known works, it gives you a much deeper insight into the compositions by Debussy. These are truly revelatory images of Debussy sound world as I have never heard them before. The ebb and flow, the magic, it hangs as a gossamer curtain over this musical adventure, for that it honestly is.....The impressionism is a feature that comes naturally out of what you hear, unforced and spiritual to the very essence. Magnificent. Even if you already have prime recordings of this music, no matter, these ones you need too. This all said, it is difficult for me, however good the performance and recording to keep my attention to the music of Debussy. I tend to wander off quite easily. Still magnificent music.
But...this is the performance to have.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
