Stephane Deneve's Debussy album named a Recording of the Month!

Musicweb International just listed Stephane Deneve and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra's latest recording on the Chandos label, a double SACD set of Debussy orchestral works, as a recording of the month!  In addition to this, David Hurwitz of gave it a 10/10 rating. 

This is totally deserved, in my opinion.  These are beautiful performances in wonderfully recorded sound (and I'm only listening to this in two channel stereo ... I'd love to be able to hear it in multichannel), and this CD will most likely be on my top 10 list for the year.  In my opinion, this album may be on its way to attaining reference status, alongside such great Debussy interpreters as Ernest Ansermet, Paul Paray, Charles Munch, Jean Martinon, and Jean Martinon.
