'The Debussy songs have been orchestrated by Brett Dean, whose technicolor sonic imagination brings these elusive settings into vivid focus...The result is beguiling interpretations, performed with controlled intensity.'

'Fauré’s Prelude to Penelope surges and sweeps, Debussy’s Pelléas and Mélisande suite has a rich, sombre beauty and La Mer sounds robust, brooding and vast.'

Robin Ticciati & DSO - Debussy & Faure - CD Choice

07 September 2017
CD Choice
Barry Forshaw

'And the performances are as nonpareil as ever — as with this intriguing coupling. The rarity here is the orchestration by Brett Dean of Debussy’s songs Ariettes oubliées, sensitively sung by Magdalena Kozena and which in this new iteration add an intriguing new piece to the recorded repertoire of the French composer.'
