(First, apparently eMusic has fixed the problem with the first track: I notice no distortion whatsoever.) As other reviewers have noted with respect to Bavouzet's recordings of the Debussy piano works, he is a truly marvelous interpreter of Debussy's music. Understated and subtle, which makes the music live at a sublime level. I am not normally a huge fan of solo piano music, even when performed by the true masters of the instrument, but Bavouzet has made a true devotee out of me with these recordings. I plan to download the entire 3-volume collection, which amounts to an incredibly Good Deal here at eMusic. Highly, highly recommended!
