The Harmonia Mundi label’s ongoing series of recordings marking the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy continues with this fascinating album of chamber works. On it, violinist Isabelle Faust has brought together an all-star team of musicians including cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, violist Antoine Tamestit, flutist Magali Mosnier, harpist Xavier de Maistre and pianists Alexander Melnikov, Javier Perianes, and Tanguy de Williencourt. Debussy’s three sonatas are the focal point here, with accompanied works for cello and violin. The remainder of the program features a colorful selection of piano works from the composer’s late period.
