Notes & Reviews:

This new release from naïve brings together three composers who knew each other and worked together in Paris in the first half of the nineteenth century: Berlioz, Reber and Liszt. The works presented here offer a panorama of French musical tastes of the years 1830-1850. Two of them are world premiere recordings: Reber's Symphony no.4 and the world premiere recording of Liszt's Piano concerto no.1 on period piano, performed by Bertrand Chamayou, whose Liszt Années de Pèlerinage recent recording got an outstanding praise from the international press.

The Guardian, July 2012
Chamayou plays a magnificent-sounding 1837 Erard piano, in what is apparently the first period-instrument recording of the work. His performance has dash and devilment, the orchestral playing packs a punch, but the other works on the disc are even more intriguing.
