Notes & Reviews:

World Première Recording A pupil of Dukas and a lifelong friend of Ravel, the composer, pianist and critic Gustave Samazeuilh was a central figure in Parisian musical life over many decades. His skill as a pianist can be heard in the majestic colours and intense virtuosity of Le Chant de la mer (The song of the sea). From the Classical discipline of the Suite en sol (Suite in G) to the later Nocturne (the composer's transcription of his symphonic poem Nuit), and Quatre Esquisses (Four Sketches), Samazeuilh's voice emerges as one of remarkable originality and superb musical realisation.

Do you like the music of second-tier French composers like Schmitt, Ropartz, and Cras? If so, you'll enjoy this very much. Pianist Olivier Chauzu uses ample pedal, as he should, yet the individual parts of Samazeuilh's typically three-layered compositions are heard clearly - credit of course to the composer as well, who writes expertly for his instrument. The Steinway D sounds good, with rich bass, and it's a studio recording with some reverb, not too close. Excellent and thorough notes, as usual for this label.
