Orchestral Works 7: Fantaisie for Piano and Orchestra / Deux danses / Rhapsodies for Clarinet and Saxophone – Claude Debussy

Album

This album features some of his orchestral works that showcase his originality and diversity. The Fantaisie for Piano and Orchestra is a youthful work that combines romantic lyricism with impressionist colors. The Deux danses are two pieces for harp and strings that evoke ancient Greece and medieval France. The Rhapsodies for Clarinet and Saxophone are two solo concertos that explore the expressive possibilities of these woodwind instruments.

The album is performed by the Orchestre National de Lyon, conducted by Jun Märkl, with soloists Jean-Yves Thibaudet (piano), Emmanuel Ceysson (harp), Paul Meyer (clarinet), and Alexandre Doisy (saxophone). It is part of a series of recordings dedicated to Debussy’s orchestral works by the same performers.
