Debussy – Poetic Impressions

Two dollars from cash converters! Bargain! The Best of Debussy album I bought a little while ago has been growing and growing on me. This album tends towards the gentle, pretty side and most of the tracks are solo piano pieces, along with three orchestral tracks and a violin and piano sonata.

The orchestral piece is a little boring but I like the rest of it very much, although he can tend toward the peppy side a little. I like his inventive tonalities and his light but complex and evocative style. In fact I think I'm starting to like this guy as much as Ravel.
