WALTER GIESEKING Debussy: the first Columbia recordings

Walter Gieseking’s name has long been synonymous with the music of Debussy, but today we know him largely from his later1950s recordings; here we have his earlier accounts, made in the 1930s and 40s, and considered by many to be even finer.


Australian recording pioneer

Una Bourne (1882–1974) was fêted in her own lifetime: a child prodigy, she later recorded widely for HMV in the acoustic era before retiring from touring in 1939. This first-ever reissue demonstrates her virtuosity and charm in music from Cyril Scott and Chaminade to Grieg and Weber.
