An important marker in Debussy’s compositional development, the Fantaisie reflects something of the influence of César Franck’s Symphonic Variations yet embodies his own new aesthetic. Unpublished in Debussy’s lifetime, it is heard here in its 1968 revision. The delicately evocative Rapsodie for saxophone is an exotic work with an ‘oriental’ atmosphere and Spanish or Moorish associations. Although composed as a Conservatoire test piece, the Première Rapsodie for Clarinet has long since entered the repertoire as an important addition for the instrument.

Review By Classic FM,

The magical sounds conjured up by Jun Märkl and his stunning orchestra seduce the ear with Debussy’s concertante music.

Jean-Yves Thibaudet is…on commanding form, while Paul Meyer’s dreamy phrasing proves unfailingly seductive in the Clarinet Rhapsody…Finest of all are the two harp dances, which shimmer iridescently.

Another artistic triumph from Märkl and his distinguished soloists… © Classic FM



Review By Phillip Scott ,Limelight Magazine,March 2012

This disc brings together the composer’s four concertante pieces with excellent soloists…

Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet…proves as stylish as ever in Debussy’s early Fantaisie…Thibaudet and Märkl find a touching, inward quality in the slow movement, marked Lento e molto espressivo, and plenty of light-fingered brio in the finale.

Culture Catch Best of 2011: #18

what is most striking about these performances is the magical lightness of the orchestra…a very French touch to the playing here, a graceful elegance that makes points clearly without insisting too forcefully. And although Naxos is a budget label (THE budget label), its sonics are audiophile quality. This is Impressionism at its best. © 2012 Culture Catch See complete list
