Notes & Reviews:

Following Emmanuel Ceysson's successful naïve debut (Opéra Fantaisie), Belle Epoque features works for harp and orchestra composed in France in the early twentieth century, probably the "golden age" of that brilliant instrument. The result is an exhilarating recording of concertos by Saint-Saëns, Henriette Renié, Dubois and Pierné. With his powerful, virtuoso playing, Emmanuel Ceysson, the 'enfant terrible' of the harp, sweeps away all the clichés associated with his instrument. His infectious enthusiasm and boundless energy reveals the harp in all its sparkling splendour, in a world where poetry vies with temperament.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
M. Ceysson's playing is superb. He has a deft touch, with firm rhythm and sensitive dynamics. The orchestra ably fulfills its role of interacting with the soloist, and Jean consistently paces the music well. She was an interesting woman of strong character - and deeply religious, holding to her convictions in the face of. Clearly a person worth knowing.
