Notes & Reviews:

Appreciated and encouraged at the time by renowned composers, Maxime Jacob, becoming Dom Clement Jacob in 1930, was seen as the figure of a certain French musical tradition: spontaneity and simplicity. This second album of pianist Bernard Arbus is a wonderful tribute to a composer of great interest in the history of piano music.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Much of Sonata 5 is spent noodling around the middle register with both hands playing the same line an octave apart. If you require any sort of dreaminess in your nocturnes, No. 2 will leave you thirsty. Arbus plays everything with a light touch, very smoothly.
