    Anyone own this massive collection? I don't see any other Debussy Orchestral Works collection this big. Recommended. Listening to it now on MOG.

    Maybe because Debussy didn't write that much music for orchestra. Much of this is orchestrated by others.

    Try Martinon, if he's on MOG.

    True. But for those that want to hear his piano works orchestrated, this is the collection to get (or listen to on Spotify/MOG). And I already own the Martinon one.

    And yes they got Martinon for both Debussy and Ravel. Just type in Jean Martinon under artist and scan down.

    Neoshredder, how is the orchestration?

    I happily imagine the orchestral transcriptions of Debussy's piano works to be very heavy on the winds. Or?

    Edit: I've never used such a service as Spotify. I think it might just be high time to start.

    Think of it as an extension of Debussy's already made orchestral works. They basically copied his ideas imo. But I'm not sure yet. I just know that Debussy is great for sleep time. This selection is no different.

    Goodness, isn't that the truth?

    Debussy's music is exclusively night music in my reckoning. At least, it suits the gentleness of the evening well enough. Likewise with Gabriel Faure.

    I'm starting to build a Debussy collection and would like to know where to go next. I have his complete works on piano by Crossley and Michelangeli's partial set, and have my eye on the Bavouzet; this chamber disc is in the mail and I have the complete orchestral works by Martinon on hand. Where should I go next?

    Pelleas et Mellisande, conducted by Boulez, then the songs...but I'll let someone else provide recommendations there.

    Wise choice! Paul Crossley is a living legend.

    Check out Debussy's chansons. They are beautiful.

    Ariette Oublies
    5 Poems de Charles Baudelaire

    Veronique Dietschy & Philippe Cassard version is worth checking out.
