Following Emmanuel Ceysson's successful naive debut (Opera Fantaisie), Belle Epoque features works for harp and orchestra composed in France in the early twentieth century, probably the 'golden age' of that brilliant instrument. The result is an exhilarating recording of concertos by Saint-Saens, Henriette Renie, Dubois and Pierne. With his powerful, virtuoso playing, Emmanuel Ceysson, the 'enfant terrible' of the harp, sweeps away all the cliches associated with his instrument. His infectious enthusiasm and boundless energy reveals the harp in all its sparkling splendour, in a world where poetry vies with temperament.
