The French pianist Jean-Paul Gasparian has chosen Debussy for his first album with naïve, an album full of sensitivity and colour, including the first ever recording of the transcription of the Rondes de printemps. With this album devoted solely to Debussy, Jean-Paul Gasparian invites listeners to integrate the atmospheres, colours and timbres that make up Debussy’s world. ‘The piano, here,’ he says, ‘is a tool that lets your imagination wander, a machine that creates perceptions. Like a sort of stationary journey.’ It is also an opportunity for Jean-Paul Gasparian to show us another facet of his temperament, already seen in Rachmaninoff and the Romantic repertoire, and return to his beginnings.
