Reviews

‘Australian Eloquence can boast what arguably is the most intelligent reissue program available today. From Universal’s huge back catalog nearly every release offers a well-chosen selection of familiar and unfamiliar material, so that both casual listeners and serious collectors will find plenty of tantalizing titles. This Debussy collection, which primarily features less-familiar pieces, is a case in point’ ClassicsToday.com

‘All Haitink’s Debussy is notable for his location of rhythm, and its buoyant and precise articulation … Haitink’s Jeux… is possessed of a near miraculous precision, definition and delicacy’ Gramophone

‘a veritable treasure trove … a delightful Debussy collection, excellently performed’ MusicWeb
