HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Claude Debussy – Images I / II – Children’s Corner (Michelangeli)

One of Michelangeli’s supreme recordings! The Images books sublimely wrought, a pianist of excruciating gifts with his mystifying inner world fully alive, and beautifully intimate sonics that are a model of restraint. What more can you ask for? Find me another recorded version of the Images to rival this one.
