Alkan: Esquisses Op 63 / Laurent Martin

Album Summary

>Alkan, Charles-Valentin : Esquisses (48) for Piano, Op. 63
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The range of musical reference within Alkan's "Esquisses" is very great indeed. For instance, 'Le staccatissimo' suggests links between the age of the French clavecinistes of the late seventeenth and early eighteen centuries on the one hand, and Chopin and Schumann on the other. 'Confidence' evokes the form and texture of a Mendelssohn 'Song without Words', while 'Les soupires' looks forward to Debussy. The concluding 'Laus Deo' evokes the solemn tolling of bells.
