Score to Claude Debussy's Ce Qu'a Vu Le Vent D'Ouest (Prelude 1), orchestrated by Colin Matthews.
During his time as the Halle Orchestra's Composer in Association between 2001 and 2010, Colin Matthews spent five years making orchestral versions of all 24 of Debussy's Preludes. He has been heralded for the success with which he has taken the inspiration of the piano masterpieces and skilfully created orchestral works of great variety, beauty and drama. Indeed, following their critical reception these works are being taken up and performed by orchestras across the world.

... more than orchestrations, they are recreations achieved by entering into the mind and thought of the original composer. Beautiful performances.
