For Claude Debussy, the imaginative life was real life. A musical pantheist and revolutionary, he sensed the very heart of the centre of natural phenomena, their `inscape` or essence; and seeking, as he put it, to `express the inexpressible`, he longed to liberate music `from the barren traditions that stifle it`. Such fantasy and freedom combine with a no less marked love of precision and finesse to give Debussy`s music an inimitable calibre and stature.

Few overviews of Debussy`s piano music have been as consistently satisfying as Gordon Fergus-Thompson`s. Sensitively recorded, it is full of half-lights, colour and vibrancy. It won the MRA `Best Instrumental Recording of the Year` and a Penguin Guide `rosette` and has received rave reviews in the international press.
