Get more modern recordings of classical music

I often go to lists of recordings of classical composers or look of specific pieces of music. The last one is typical of the problem I see. I’m listening to Debussy and the recording is by a pianist named Walter Gieseking who died in 1956. I’m sure he was among the best however, the recordings are of poor sound quality due to the fact that recording technology is light years ahead of that time today.

PLEASE get content recorded for classical music within the last 20 years or at least the master should have been made with a digital studio/recording equipment!! It’s kind of painful listening to this music with such limited frequencies due to the older recordings. Thank you

Deezer’s catalogue of classical music is pretty good and also up to date with new releases. Maybe you should change your search method, e.g. do not click on the first “Top Result”, rather use the full composer name, in this case Claude Debussy. Or look for the performer/pianist if you know his name. You can also choose between available tabs for artists, albums, playlists etc. containing your search term. Here is the artist profile for Claude Debussy, check the discography/albums section:
