Notes & Reviews:

At last, something genuinely new. It was in these terms that Ferruccio Busoni greeted the publication in 1908 of the 14 Bagatelles, in which Béla Bartók conveyed the violent aesthetic impact of his discovery of authentic Hungarian peasant music. Over the next twenty years, up to the magisterial Piano Sonata of 1926, he indefatigably refined an innovative pianistic language - pungent, dissonant and percussive, with multiple new playing techniques - that was to influence the entire 20th century. A master of every style, from Haydn to Boulez by way of Chopin and Chabrier, Alain Planès stands revealed here as a Bartókian of the front rank.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2014
The sense of relish with which he delves deep into Bart=k's personal idiom is quite irresistable...one of his finest qualities if that he never compromises on tone quality. Bart=k's own recordings as a pianist reveal an exceptionally clear, singing touch that is never heavy-handed and PlanFs is absolutely true to the composer's rigour and poise.
