Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
This is an intriguing collection of CTsar Franck's five works involving a solo piano... [Chamayou] demonstrates that both the solo-piano PrTlude, Aria et Final and Les Djinns, a compact symphonic poem for piano and orchestra based upon a Victor Hugo poem, deserve to be heard far more frequently.

The Telegraph
The PrTlude, Choral et Fugue has long been among the keyboard repertoire's toughest challenges, and here its sturdy counterpoint, elaborate flourishes, ripe textures and serpentine harmonies are conveyed with impressive panache and interpretative seriousness by the young French pianist Bertrand Chamayou.

Gramophone Magazine
This is an outstanding release in every way. In fact, I cannot recall another that included all Franck's masterpieces for the piano on a single disc and in which, moreover, every performance goes straight to the top of recommended recordings.
