Notes & Reviews:

Roussel wrote a notable body of work for piano, although he is better known for his orchestral works. This is the second of three volumes of the complete works for piano. It includes Roussel's own piano reduction of his first orchestral work. Resurrection is a response to the feelings provoked by Tolstoy's final novel. The composer's love for nature and the outdoors inspired the three Rustiques. Promenade sentimentale en foret, the second movement of the piece, is memorable for its birdsong and moving polyphony. The Suite in F sharp minor is Roussel's largest piano composition, and is instilled with energy and exciting effects.
