Two well-known and two less-familiar orchestral works by Debussy
• A new recording from the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (SWR) and Heinz Holliger,
following up on their globally acclaimed Koechlin series
• A continuation of the orchestra’s exploration of the French orchestral repertoire that began
with their CDs of the music of Koechlin
• May 21st 2014: Heinz Holliger’s 75th birthday
The "Afternoon of a Faun“ together with the orchestral "Images" are among Claude Debussy’s best known and most popular compositions. Both works show different side of the composer: "Afternoon of a Faun" is a textbook example of musical impressionism, while
about the "Images", the composer himself said that his
goal was to “try to achieve something different – an
effect of reality”. The scores contrast well with the two
Rhapsodies: the one for clarinet, called the "first"
Rhapsody, was sketched out within a few weeks at the
end of 1909, while the "second" Rhapsody for
saxophone was only completed and orchestrated after
the death of its author.
The Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (SWR) and
conductor Heinz Holliger manage to bring out the
evocative, dynamic colors and peculiarities to be found
in all of these works with precision.
