Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Cité de la Musique in Paris is a major centre covering all musical genres & repertoires. It has 2 concert halls and a museum of early instruments. Naïve & the Cité de la Musique have launched a series in which great performer's record on legendary instruments. This new volume in the series is dedicated to an instrument scarcely played, the pedal piano, belonging to a line of instruments similar to the organ, equipped with a pedal keyboard. World famous organist Olivier Latry records prestigious pieces composed during the middle of the 19th century, written specifically for pedal piano. Including 2 monumental pieces of Liszt, Evocation à la Chapelle Sixtine & Prélude et Fugue on B-A-C-H .

Sunday Times
This isn't a simple grand piano with an organ pedal board attached - the range, layout and undoubtedly feel are completely different. The sound has the characteristic hardness of pianos from the period, and Latry refrains from attempting too much nuance.

Gramophone Magazine
Realistically recorded, there is no disguising the fact that the pedalier is a percussion instrument (try Schumann's Op. 58 No. 4) which produces a certain amount of clunking in the playing process. True, the five short Boely works are charming curiosities, but it is two of Alkan's Op. 66 Preludes that impress the most. The disc is nicely presented, as you'd expect from Nanve

BBC Music Magazine
It's a revelation to hear Schumann's Sketches, or the original version of Liszt's Prelude and Fugue on B-A-C-H played as intended. Not all the pieces are great, but there are some gems... Latry's performances are utterly convincing.
