Arbiter has uncovered unknown performances by musicians who reached Claude Debussy's inner life more so than those accepted as his emblematic interpreters. Marius-François Gaillard played Debussy's piano music from memory, starting in 1920 when he was twenty, receiving praise from Mme. Debussy. Each work explores an enigma that reveals itself through its individuality. Mieczyslaw Horszowski heard the composer play and brings his experience into pieces that he performed by him for over eighty years. Irén Marik played the composer throughout her entire life and had been close to Bartók, who often performed Debussy's music. Marie-Thérèse Fourneau, a lost master, takes a late work to an unprecedented height. Our restoration of Debussy himself at the piano with Mary Garden capture 1904 sounds that have finally become audible. Gailliard's Debussy recordings include early works, Suite Bergamasque, Pour le Piano, Estampes, nine Préludes, and others. Marik plays two Préludes and En Blanc et Noir. Horszowski is heard in Children's Corner Suite and Fourneau in a late Étude. Irén Marik and John Ranck also perform En blanc et noir. Most of the recordings are published for the first time and Gaillard's Debussy receives its first restoration from original shellac discs.
