5.0 out of 5 stars Singing Debussy June 2 2012
By apt2full - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Of all the Debussy piano recordings I've heard, these are the ones that most bring out the singing quality of the melodies.

Most critical Debussy piano discussions revolve around misty vs. distinct, but Crossley is most devoted to finding the song and bringing it out. How often are you tempted to hum out loud along with Debussy piano recordings?

The harmonies and textures here are warm and the engineering is close and enfolding.

Some have complained that Crossley's rhythms and tempi are eccentric. It is true that these are very personal, and not always tightly reflective of the score's instructions. But they are well within legitimate bounds of personal interpretation, and nowhere near as off-the-wall as, say, Garrick Ohlsson's Chopin box, which is genuinely weird and critically accepted.

I find myself returning to these Crossley Debussy recordings much more often than Tirimo's bargain release, which is clean, correct and sensitive, but much less addictive.

Crossley is highly recommended, and a steal at the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting New (re-)Release of Rare Debussy... Sept. 3 2012
By Good-Bye to All That - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
An Exciting New (re-)Release of Rare Debussy...
~~~
Admirable as the Debussy of Rogé, Arrau, Rév, Van Immerseel, Weissenberg, and Zimerman are (to name favourites), Paul Crossley's is yet perhaps more laudable still.

Crossley's studio performances were recorded at Snape Maltings in 1992 with Sony's 20-bit techne: the sound is superb.

Originally issued as single discs with charming 19th C Parisian photographs on the cover, this re-issue at a bargain price is invaluable for the realizations and content--a really complete set of Debussy's oeuvre pour le piano

~~~
Debussy: Complete Works For Solo Piano, Vol. 1
Debussy: Complete Works For Solo Piano, Vol. 2: Preludes, Book 2 / Estampes / Children's Corner
Debussy: Complete works for Solo Piano, Vol. 3 (12 Etudes, Masques, L'Isle joyeuse, D'un cahier d'esquisses)

~~~

And if the celestially sublime aesthetic Decadence of César Franck's musique pour piano is desired, Crossley's is the best. Full stop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge the book by the cover Sept. 13 2012
By Kevin Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is Debussy playing of the highest order. Don't be fooled by the budget price or packaging; the recording quality is wonderful, and Paul Crossley is a supremely gifted musician and interpreter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate, totally involving Debussy April 13 2013
By William Dodd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am up to my elbows in Debussy. I love Debussy. I wasn't sure that anyone could show me something different, but this low priced box made finding out very easy. The fine and detailed reviews above were very helpful as well. I'm very fond of Roge and Thibaudet in Debussy. Monique Haas is detailed and fine. And Gieseking... Many others. But these Crossley recordings are absolutely wonderful. Fluid brush strokes that transport me totally. Yes, his performances often take more time, but never drag. His fingers fly, the notes are distinct, but the lines are always smooth. Some sellers have this box for just over ten bucks. For the price of two people having lunch at Burger King, you can have a lifetime of exquisite Debussy pianisam.
**** The following has been added: Since I wrote the above I've purchased discs with Paul Crossley playing the music of Ravel, Poulenc, and Faure. All are quite fine, especially the Poulenc.
5.0 out of 5 stars First-order Debussy! Sept. 29 2013
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Since I knew about Paul Crossley, I was engaged due its ferrous artistic personality. My first contact was through Michael Tippet's Piano Sonatas.

These four albums show us Crossley in an inspired mood, where he looks expressive and eloquent with a deep concern about every single piece. Full artistic conviction, crystalline phrasing and this incorporeal atmosphere Debussy requests.

Don't think it twice and go for this legendary album.
