Review by Luukas June 5, 2014 (3 of 5 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Valery Gergiev conducts Debussy's music with his Russian way, and it sounds surprisingly well: all works are performed perfectly (specially the powerful and natural La Mer) and LSO Live label's recording is outstanding: Barbican Hall sounds very good concert hall.
Gergiev's tempi are slow, but it brings new exotic of these familiar works. The Faun's afternoon is very attractive and La Mer is brilliant. I can almost feel sea's cold water on my skin and smell beach's clear air! Wonderful recording, indeed! HIGHLY RECOMMEND for all Debussy fans! If you owned good surround listening equipment, this SACD rocks you! Breathtaking experience!
