The legendary Italian pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (1920 - 1995), playing at the height of his powers, performs some of Debussy's most sensuous and arresting music for piano, in the famously rare 1962 RAI television recording, newly restored and re-mastered for this release. Michelangeli's fine control and perfect clarity - always present in his playing - have positioned him among the most outstanding recording artists of any generation. "His fingers can no more hit a wrong note or smudge a passage than a bullet can be veered off course once it has been fired..." (Music critic Harold Schonberg)
Works: Debussy: Images Books 1 & 2; Children's Corner; Canope; Bruyères
"This recital was filmed and recorded by RAI at Turin in 1962 and is black-and-white. The playing is anything but. Michelangeli plays with an amazingly wide range of colour and refinement of dynamics and touch." (The Penguin Guide)

I have almost all of the Debussy printed music. SUBLIME MUSIC
Accompanying this masterful recital is a documentary made for Italian television three years earlier (in 1959) in which a fatuous interviewer talks with five of Michelangeli's pupils (the most famous of which is the great Polish pianist Adam Harasiewicz) and very briefly with Michelangeli himself. The obviously rehearsed but supposedly spontaneous interviews add little to our understanding and appreciation of the Michelangeli.
This DVD is indispensable for fans of Michelangeli or of great piano playing. It is a historical document that was happily preserved, and its two companion DVDs (of the artist playing Beethoven and of Chopin) are equally valuable.
Subtitles in the usual languages (although the placards announcing the individual works are in Italian); Sound: LPCM mono; Time (including the 30-minute documentary): 84 mins.
This is simply the best Debussy I have heard. Awesome analog recording with Neumann U47 single mic. Entrancing all the way!
