Program Notes:  The piano music of Claude Debussy (1862-1918) is significant, varied and timelessly endearing. Writing for the piano allowed the revolutionary composer an opportunity to explore groundbreaking ideas, both harmonically and pianistically. A honing of compositional technique is apparent in these works, alongside a clear fascination with the wide-ranging potential of the piano as an instrument. Examples abound of Debussy’s so-called “impressionistic” style, a term befitted upon his music by art critics, and not the composer himself. The technical element of Debussy’s craft is but one intriguing aspect. More immediate to the listener is the radiance of color, the vividness of each character and the communication of something deeply personal.


REVIEWS
“The celebrated American pianist Jerry Wong doesn’t come out with a new album every year, but when he does it’s one to remember. In Wong’s thoughtful interpretation, we are left with an unexpected sense of happiness and awe at the simple joy of being alive.”
