The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

Dávid Báll (piano)

The two volumes of Debussy's Préludes are one of the most significant series of piano literature. They were composed in the last decade of Debussy's life, in 1910 and 1913, and represent the essence of the composer's work. "Performers like to play audience favourites of the volumes in concert halls, but the works are rarely performed all at once. The preludes are masterpieces in themselves, but the second volume is more special to me: it introduces an even wiser Debussy, living in perfect harmony with himself and the world, who no longer merely knows all the ins and outs of earthly existence, but has also gained insight into the transcendent reality of otherworldly existence," Dávid Báll says of the French master's series.
