Debussy Images, Jeux & La plus que lente
Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony release an all-Debussy album – nominated for a GRAMMY Award – featuring Images pour orchestre, Jeux, and La plus que lente. This album brings the vivid landscapes of Images, impassioned playfulness of Jeux, and the sensuality of La plus que lente together in a collection that exquisitely illustrates the French composer’s mastery with orchestration.
"It’s as effective in the descriptive and evocative pieces of the Images as it is in the much more elusive scenario of Jeux, in which Tilson Thomas weaves the thematic threads into a shimmering, allusive web, with the insidious waltz that emerges in the final pages connecting neatly with the slow waltz of La plus Que Lente. A gorgeous disc."
