Sandro Russo’s playing has often been described as a throwback to the grand tradition of elegant pianism and beautiful sound. On “Images and Mirages,” Russo pays a heartfelt tribute to Claude Debussy on the 100th anniversary of his death. Russo creates a portrait of the composer that not only highlights his many masterpieces, but which also recreates his world through the composers he influenced. Thus, featured on the album are “hommages” to Debussy, written as part of a collective tribute, Le tombeau de Claude Debussy.
