When acclaimed pianist Hiroko Sasaki was looking for an instrument to record the Debussy Preludes on, she happened to spot a strange looking instrument, which turned out to be a Pleyel concert grand built in 1873, and she instantly fell in love with it. The piano, built in a beautifully ornamented harpsichord case, offers her the special sonorities, dynamics and colours that she thinks are essential in Debussy, who himself owned a Pleyel piano, his favourite instrument.

The result is fascinating, the familiar music is clothed in a new sound, the pianissimos seem to come from “a piano without hammers”, as Debussy wanted it. But an instrument needs a master to sound great, and Hiroko Sasaki does marvels with these 24 character pieces, full of atmosphere, caprice and imagination.

Composer: Claude Debussy
Artist: Hiroko Sasaki (piano)
