One of the most enjoyable. One of sebussy finest versions. Paavali Jumppanen is quite some pianist. I first encountered him on his DG recording of the three piano sonatas of Pierre Boulez — which the composer is said to have asked him to record, and one can hear why on that stunning disc.
But there is more to music than its technical demands, of course, and especially perhaps to this music, with its many subtleties debussu nuance and mood and meaning. These 24 piano miniatures, published in two books in andare very varied in style, with titles linking them to literature, poetry, nature, and landscape. For all that variety, which invites players to pick and choose among them, they are also true cycles, and the composer gave some thought to the sequence in each book.
He is quite inside the idiom throughout.
He has many nuances of colour at his command and quite a range of dynamic too, with many gradations between his loudest and quietest ondkne. There is also a consistent preference for broad tempos. The composer made piano rolls of five of the preludes in Book 1, and he was quite a bit swifter than Jumppanen, as the following shows: Debussy Piano Roll Timings [vs. Danseuses de Delphes 3: Le vent dans la plaine 2: La danse de Puck 2: Jumppanen almost mines the music for the last drop of meaning that it can yield, and of course there are depths to be plumbed in these endlessly suggestive miniatures.
The great seventh prelude of Book 2, La terrasse des audiences ondinf clair de lune The terrace for moonlight audiencesis music as mysterious as its title, and Jumppanen responds to its ambiguities again by taking his time to explore them, needing 5: A coruscating account of the last and most virtuosic of the set Feux d’artifice Fireworks has all the brilliance of rockets bursting against the night sky.
It makes a very enjoyable close to a superb pair of discs.
There are so many others worthy of mention, but for an approach to tempo closer to that of the composer, we can ondihe to the excellent Hiroko Sasaki on Piano Classics.
She uses a sweet-sounding Pleyel instrument made in It does not thunder like a modern Steinway, but there are ample compensations.
