  • February 12, 2011 One of Poulenc's best solo piano works

    I agree with the earlier review, and would only add that Alexandre Tharaud's recording is equally satisfying. Technically the piece doesn't require top-notch virsuosity, but an appreciation of French keyboard style -- best attained by thoughtful and varied listening -- is essential. This affordable re-issue reduces the oversize...

    original to 9x12 but doesn't noticeably reduce the size of the notation. Happily recommended!

  • May 03, 2009 Romantic Impressionism

    This ,in my view, is the most beautifull composition by poulenc. It combines impressionism with romanticism and stirs the heart every time one hears it.It is a bit difficult to play, but if one has a fair technique and is willing to put some time into it, it is...

    well worth the effort. I would suggest listening to a rendition of it.My favorite is Andre Previns.
