HD-Vinyl Mono 24/96 (EMI/Angel) Claude Debussy – 15 Piano Pieces – Walter Gieseking

Many thanks to our friend Trottar for this gem
Most looking at Gieseking’s Debussy recordings for EMI already know what it’s about; Gieseking’s interpretations have been seminal since their original release, if not without controversy. Whether you feel that nobody has done them better, or you have quibbles with his approach, these are indeed recordings that everyone moderately interested in Debussy or even classical music should at least hear.

  1. GREAT! I love Gieseking. I had the American Edition of this album which had a black wooden doweling as the spine attached to the plastic lined Envelope the LP went into.
    Thanks Trottar for getting this to Alf.
    It is beautiful.
