CLAUDE DEBUSSY (1862-1918): 24 Préludes (orch. Peter Breiner [b.1957]).
Catalogue Number: 10O053
Description: Now I guess it's a cottage industry to orchestrate the Debussy Préludes. Here's the third one in the last seven years (after Luc Brewaeys on Talent and Colin Matthews on Hallé). At budget-price, you're not going to require an in-depth academic treatise on the orchestration of this new one (which is good because I couldn't give one), but it is worth noting that this one is on one disc and totals 76 minutes while Brewaeys (81 min.) and Matthews (93 min.) needed two. Over to you... Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Jun Märkl.
