Notes & Reviews:

Louis Schwizgebel may not be as well-known as other pianists on the international stage, but he leaves an indelible stamp on each masterpiece he performs. This album, dedicated to Camille Saint-Sans, began with a sensational recording of the Piano Concerto No.2 made in 2014 for the BBC. Moved by his performance, the BBC and Apart decided to join forces to produce, under the same conditions, the Piano Concerto No.5 as a natural pairing to complete this transcendent program.
