Von Oeyen’s style, weighty yet elegant, suits it wonderfully well, though. There’s reflection as well as bravado in the opening movement, while the central Lento really is molto espressivo, becoming darker and increasingly introspective as it progresses...Von Oeyen’s treatment of the finale, meanwhile, dispatched with breezy wit over pizzicato basses sounding positively jazzy, makes you question Debussy’s judgement about its inferiority to the rest of the score.
