Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

  • Odyssey was conceived as a triptych, with the works chosen because of their evocations of Romanticism's major themes.
  • Pianist Frédéric D'Oria-Nicolas, noted for his sonorous piano sound and assured manner, has recorded several critcally acclaimed albums for Fondamenta.
  • Booklet notes in French and English.
