Claude Monet (1840-1926) was at the forefront of the Impressionist revolution in painting. Together with a small group of like-minded friends, he scandalised the critics by devising a new way of representing the world in all its bewildering variety of light and shadow. Here, the world of Monet is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time.
 
We may enjoy here some of the greatest moments in musical and artistic development in the late nineteenth century, as Impressionism was emerging triumphant. On this album, Monet’s incredible foresight and breathtaking depictions of natural beauty are musically complemented by such landmarks as Debussy’s graceful Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and Bizet’s daring masterpiece Carmen. 
"Performances are on the whole very solid, and the recorded sound is excellent. I am sometimes at a loss as to why anyone would buy discs other than Naxos, given this company’s continued value and quality! I have yet to see news of the release of this series in the US, but it is certain to be a big success once it crosses the water and gets to American record stores. This disc is highly recommended for music lovers of all stripes, and bravo to Naxos for once again delivering interesting and appealing items to add to our libraries!"
