Jorge Bolet chooses sixteen from Debussy’s 24 Préludes, including the first and last, and brings each one alive, running the gamut from hypnotic to brightly edgy – through old-world flexibility Bolet brings-out the fantasy-narrative inherent in the pieces. ‘The Girl with Flaxen Hair’ is a winsome creature, ‘The Engulfed Cathedral’ an underwater leviathan towering to majesty, and ‘Fireworks’ a dazzling light-show.
