Pierre Boulez, Cleveland Orchestra
"Debussy: Images for Orchestra" (Vinyl)

Debussy wrote this three-movement work as sort of series of postcards of memories and travels between the years 1905 - 1912.
Debussy originally conceived the work arranged for two pianos, but later orchestrated it for full symphony.

This particular copy of Boulez's recording with the Cleveland Orchestra came out of a library sale in college. The catalog stickers are visible in the upper left corner of the image.  Surprisingly, the record is in good shape.  Perhaps this means no one listened to this recording all that often...
