Much of Debussy's genius vanishes when heard from a vinyl recording. The dynamics of the compositions are lost because there is no way for the music to pause without starting a new track. That entire problem was solved by the compact disc. Translation to digital made it very easy for the music to be distributed without authorization, but that would mean little to Debussy.
