    You shall find in this piece that I stripped from the music
    what is not constructive and essencial,
    making music into a dry skeleton,
    in such a way it becomes non-musical and mechanical.
    I did not want it to be like this but somehow it became.
    I wanted to express Debussy’s frangnance and delicacy
    But what I did is perfectly the opposite.

    And I thought I was self-critical! I'm not familiar with this piece but I can't imagine how this rendition is anything less than quite musical indeed, and very assured. Do you play any other Debussy?

    This is an usual interpretation, but very strong and accomplished. What it may lack in fragrance it gains in Lisztian sweep, and I am not sure the piece is much the worse for it (obviously this approach would not work for many of Debussy's mature works).

    Very assured playing, without any mistake I could hear (I know this piece quite well even though I have not played it for many years). Pity that the piano has couple of dodgy notes, but even so this deserves a place on the site if you agree with that.
