    Do you mean Pascal Roge Debussy ‘Piano Works Vol.1’ – Pour Le Piano, Deux Arabesques, Suite Bergamasque, Rêverie, Estampes, Danse Bohémienne which was London Records LP 46013 (1982 not 1980 correct?) (and also released on Decca) but on CD is Polygram Records ASIN: B00000E3D7 (cover art shows the “London” insignia”) (and others) recorded at Kingsway Hall ’77/’79? Where the order is changed from the LP and Bergamasque is first? If so, the CD transfer sounds nothing like the LP but as always Roge is a sublime player of Debussy’s (and all other French) music. Everyone has their own favorite pianist for Debussy (Michelangeli for me) but Pascal Roge’s 2005 recording of the Preludes (Book1 and 2 on one CD) on Onyx has been played at my house a hundred times I’m sure.
