Cinq Impressions (1934) is influenced by jazz and French impressionism. Arabesques (1930) takes its influence from the Romantic and Post-Romantic eras with echoes of Chopin, Satie and Scriabin.

  • Composer Alexander Tansman left a large body of music to posterity (in excess of 300 works), his overall style best described as neoclassical.
  • Pianist Eliane Reyes' concert career has taken her to North America, and the Far East in addition to her native Europe.
  • She is professor of piano at the Brussels Conservatoire Royal de Musique and a frequent member of international competition juries. Recorded 2013.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This collection of piano music by Tansman complements Reyes's recording of the composer's Intermezzos (Naxos 572530). The playing is powerful and communicative. Reyes's handling of this music is sure and nuanced. The recording quality is good, the packaging is simple.

MusicWeb International, 9th April 2014
I hope people will enjoy discovering a real wealth of fine music from this modest kindly man. Eliane Reyes, the Belgian pianist on this disc has done a fine job in interpreting the many different moods to be found within this elegant music.
