Silence over the (interposed) tones of the music.
Each prélude is its own world, building a cyclic network.
Building up to a tableau vivant.
The caesuras between the préludes are clearly defined rests.
The live balance is preserved.
A continuous, minute differentiation in the playing. Exploring the
musical structure, restructuring. Opening modes of listening that
may strike new resonances in the audience.
My artistic approach to the recording is an uncut version
to keep the musical flow as authentic as possible.
...Cecilia Li's interpretation of the 12 Préludes pour piano,
Book II by Claude Debussy shows clearly that she is entirely at
home with Debussy's world. She develops an impressively rich array
of nuances, makes ample use of differences in shades of sounds and
awes the audience with the brilliance of her artistry. I consider
this recording one of the best interpretations that I know.
