Debussy : Gigues – IBERIA
Debussy : Gigues – IBERIA
“And the blind shall see” – promising words indeed! And very apt to describe the impressionist tonal paintings of Claude Debussy, who exchanged the paintbrush for a pen and the canvas for manuscript paper. Debussy’s musical tools were not so much the etching-needle or sharp pencil but rather more a rich variety of glorious paints on his palette and thick brushes and sponges to form flowing figures and shapes on his musical canvas.

However, it cannot be denied that in the early days of the Decca Record Company these three artists - like no others - made an immense contribution towards the company's market position and to its musical identity in particular.
