Une grande sélection de concertos pour piano français.

Beginning with the (Early) Romantic concertos by Boieldieu and Alkan, and ending with concertos by Françaix and Milhaud they represent everything which is quintessentially French: a lightness of touch, charming, witty, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, colourful and bubbling with brilliant virtuosity.

Played by excellent pianists such as Magda Tagliaferro, Romain Descharmes, Gabriel Tacchino, Francois-Joël Thiollier, Michael Korstick, Florian Uhlig and Klára Würtz.

The booklet contains a newly written essay by David Moncur.

"Tacchino, a leading interpreter of late-Romantic French music, makes an unanswerable case for these underrated works to be taken more seriously, especially the First." Five Stars BBC Music [Saint-Saens]
