Debussy: Orchestral Works (CD)
This generous disc brings together all of Pierre Monteux`s Debussy recordings for Decca and Philips. Encompassing some of Debussy`s major orchestral works, these performances have a fluidity and atmosphere about them in recordings that have worn their years lightly. Monteux omits `Sirenes` in his recording of the Nocturnes - a practice not atypical of recordings of the work in the 1950s and 1960s.
