Notes & Reviews:

Henri Collet (1885-1951), perhaps most famed for coining the term "Group of Six" for that now famous group of early 20th c. French composers, was, in addition to his many professional and lay pursuits, a composer whose works include symphonies, songs, chamber music and piano works. French pianist of international stature Pascal Gallet, for many years a teacher at the National Conservatory of Music in Montreuil, offers up four opuses, in whole or in part, of select Collet piano works, plus the standalone El Escorial, the works' titles signifying Collet's academic Spanish expertise.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Here's an album full of short, charming Spanish pieces written by a Frenchman, Henri Collet, who lived from 1885 to 1951; he was the one who coined the phrase "groupe des six" to describe Milhaud and the others. The writing is all strong, the themes are enjoyable. Gallet has a heavy touch in a few pieces but generally plays warmly and judiciously. I liked his Jolivet (Maguelone 111137 and 111171, Nov/Dec 2013) for the same reasons. Collet's music is rarely performed. Notes are in English, Spanish, and French.
