American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This is a nice collection of both rare and familiar piano pieces. Only Debussy's Estampes and the Poulenc Napoli Suite are complete; the rest are selections from larger sets. I enjoyed discovering some completely new works in one of my favorite styles and eras (French, 1860s to 1940s). The Koechlin, Severac, and Poulenc are all good and seldom heard. These are the best reasons to get this recording.
