Afternoon of a Faun: The three last tracks in this CD are performances by the New York Philharmonic with Leonard Bernstein as conductor. All three recordings are superb, and these versions by Bernstein are among the best versions of these movements in the market even nowadays. Fêtes from Nocturnes: Debussy wrote Three Nocturnes for orchestra, of which this is the second movement. It is mostly advisable to listen to the complete work: Nuages (Clouds), Fêtes (Festivals), and Sirènes (Mermaids) instead of just this movement, especially if you are attracted to the mysterious, the mythical or the legendary. Performed by: Leonard Bernstein, New York Philharmonic. Claude Debussy, Fêtes, for orchestra (Nocturne No. 2), L. 91/2 5:54.

La Mer/Afternoon of a Faun/Jeux/Two Nocturnes. This is a performance of Debussy's most important musical contributions. Elegantly conducted by Leonard Bernstein, the pieces soar. These pieces have a broad appeal. They appeal to fans of great Romantic era classical music, and to popular music buffs as well. Debussy pioneered the use of "skyscaper chords," which were radically different when it came to harmony and arrangement. Debussy used harmony sixths and ninths, often using augmented scale patterns and chord blocks. Coupling the "skyscaper chords" with astounding dynamics, the pieces ebb, flow, murmur, and shine.
