Emmanuel Krivine’s sympathy for French music has been well documented for a while, as evidenced by his recordings with the Orchestre National de Lyon and the Philharmonie Luxembourg, two symphonic orchestras he beautifully directed. Presented here is his first album with the Orchestre National de France, where he has been art director since 2017. La Mer and Images pour orchestre make up, along with Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Jeux and the three Nocturnes, the backbone of Debussy’s orchestral work. It presents an imaginary realm with distant prospects, a very refined harmony and an exploration of sounds that often results in difficult issues for conductors, who are at risk of drowning in their search for colour to the detriment of the overall structure, because as impressionist as it may be, Debussy’s music is nonetheless written with tremendous rigour. But Emmanuel Krivine and his musicians skilfully avoid these pitfalls and favour lyricism with an orchestral opulence of stunning sensuality.
