ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Olga Stezhko about the album:

Comprising of five suites, the album 'Et la lune descend' marks the centenary of Debussy’s death and charts the development of his writing for piano solo from the very first 'Suite bergamasque' to the much lesser known last suite 'Six epigraphes antiques'.

I wanted to move away from the weight of academia which accumulated over the past hundred years since the composer’s death and just approach this music for what it is - with fresh ears, an open heart and the excitement of discovery. This album puts the spotlight on my personal experiences and milestones that shaped me both as a person and as a musician. Many of these milestones are universal across different generations and cultures and help us to relate to each other across the continuum of human history.

For many people, Debussy is the composer of the moon and the sea and beautiful escapism. At the same time, he is firmly rooted in the fast-paced urban environment of the turn of 20th century Paris, the melting pot of ideas and the avant-garde. And that, in my opinion, what makes Debussy's music relevant to our contemporary experiences. Without completely breaking away from its bourgeois past and present, the city of his time looked firmly into the globalised future, absorbing and incorporating the new and the exotic.

The city and the sea, the urban geometry and the unmoored sky, the magic of a child’s inner world and the adventures of adulthood - this is what I see, hear and feel in the coded kaleidoscopic harmonies, rhythms and structures of Debussy’s piano suites.

The essay and accompanying artwork are included in the CD booklet.
