Description

Critically acclaimed pianist Angela Brownridge explores the Debussy Preludes Books 1 and 2 for her third recording on Challenge Classics.

Angela has appeared in all the major London concert halls, and has visited Eastern and Western Europe, the USA, Canada, the Far East and Australia, as well as performing extensively in the UK. She has been a soloist with many leading orchestras and conductors, and Festival engagements include Bath, Edinburgh, Warwick, Newport Rhode Island, Bratislava, Brno, Hong Kong, and Maastricht. Her recorded repertoire is very varied, including some first ever collections of the complete piano music of Barber, Gershwin, Kenneth Leighton and the complete piano concertos of Saint-Saëns.

Debussy had been planning Préludes for two or three years before the first book was published in 1910, with the second book following in 1913. Each Prelude has a different descriptive title which indicates what was going through the composer's mind when he was writing them, from Shakespearean dances to underwater cathedrals.
