    One of the finest interpreters of Debussy's piano music marks the centenary of the composer's death. Nominated for Gramophone's Artist of the Year award in 2017, Bavouzet's extensive discography includes a complete and highly praised survey of Debussy's music for Chandos. The programme includes some of the composer's defining works for the instrument: 7 of his Etudes, which Debussy described as 'a warning to pianists not to take up the musical profession unless they have remarkable hands'; and the second book of Preludes with its evocations of landscapes including India, Egypt, England and his homeland, France.
