Editorial Reviews

Ernest Ansermet (1883-1969) made a series of recordings (with great producers such as Ray Minshull and others) of music by Debussy in the late 1950s and early '60s that were
second to none. Today, these interpretations are still considered a yardstick by which others are judged.
Ansermet worked closely with many of the leading composers of the day, especially Ravel and Stravinsky as he was conductor of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes from 1915 to 1923. He met
Debussy in 1917 to discuss revisions to the Nocturnes, and gave what can be considered authentic performances of the composer's works with his recently established Orchestre
de la Suisse Romande. Ansermet was an outspoken and forward-looking man. His recordings are famed for
their clear authoritative tone, and his sensitivity and awareness in recording Debussy.

By John J. Puccio TOP 1000 REVIEWER on March 24, 2013
I have never thought of Ansermet's "La Mer" as among the conductor's best work, but I suppose the folks at Newton know the conductor still has a legion of admirers, and fans will welcome everything they can get, especially when it sounds as good as this. Besides, the late Fifties, early Sixties sound holds up remarkably well.

This CD was very enjoyable. I sat listening to it on my porch with the breeze coming across my face...I can only imagine this was what Debussy was feeling when he wrote this music. It's simply life changing--makes you stop and slow down to appreciate the things around you. I'm taken in by the atmospheric melodies...almost brings you into another world--one of relaxation and peace. Definite clarity from the orchestra and the maestro--executed with great technique and masterful artistry.
