Notes & Reviews:

For Charles Koechlin (1867-1950) the piano was more a confidant with whom one shares intimate and simple impressions and memories. This intimacy defines his piano works. The post-Romantic Ballade Op. 50, inspired by Heine, was originally written for piano solo. More impressionistic and allusion-filled is the Ancienne Maison de Campagne Op. 124, reflective of impressions gathered while in Switzerland, The late Préludes Op. 209, again completely different, are like a return to Bach and the innocence of youth. Both op. 50, in its original version, and op. 209 are first recordings.
