Over to Paris this week for one day of a multi-day recital of the complete solo Piano music of Claude Debussy, as well as music by other composers who inspired Debussy, performed by Pianist Phillippe Cassard.

A pretty Herculean task, if you ask me. The whole recital was recorded in October in Paris. This concert was recorded by the venerable Radio France Musique on October 21st. Coming in at almost 2 hours, I’ve broken it up between two players. Here’s what you’ll be hearing:

1. Images oubliées (1894) 1- Lent (mélancolique et doux) N°1 2- Souvenir du Louvre N°2 3- Quelques aspects de « Nous n’irons plus au bois » parce qu’il fait un temps insupportable N°3
2. Frédéric Chopin: Berceuse en ré bémol majeur Op.57 (1844) – Claude Debussy: Images Livre I L 110 (1901, 1905) 1- Reflets dans l’eau 2- Homamge à Rameau 3- Mouvement
3. Estampes 1- Pagodes 2- La soirée dans Grenade 3- Jardins sous la pluie
4.3 pièces (1904) 1- Masques 2- D’un cahier d’esquisses 3- L’Isle joyeuse L 106
5. Children’s Corner L 113 (1906, 1908) 1- Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum 2- Jimbo’s Lullaby 3- Serenade for the doll 4- The snow is dancing 5- The little shepherd 6- Golliwogg’s cake-walk
6. Morceau de concours L 108 (1903, 1904) Le petit nègre L 114 (1909) Hommage à Haydn L 115 (1909)
7. Images, Livre II L 111 (1907) 1- Cloches à travers les feuilles 2- Et la lune descend sur le temple qui fut 3- Poissons d’or

Philippe Cassard, piano Concert donné le 21 octobre 2012, Salle Gavea.

It’s safe to say this concert hands-down qualifies as an Anti-Road Rage Special.

Enjoy.
