Notes & Reviews:

An unclassifiable figure among his contemporaries, the French composer Gabriel Fauré created a new and wholly original style on the piano. This discreetly individual artist was inspired by the resources of the instrument to conceive piano music whose luminous, diaphanous sonority is always coupled with a firm transparency of texture. A specialist in this repertoire, French pianist Jean-Claude Pennetier continues his survey of the solo works of Fauré. Volume two in the series includes the Romances sans Paroles paired with a selection of Nocturnes, Barcarolles and Impromptus.

"Pennetier focuses on the intimate nature of some of Faure's loveliest early piano works, casting them in a serious light. A beautiful selection, sympathetically played, if sometimes a little ponderous." -BBC Music Magazine
