Notes & Reviews:

This classic archive DVD features three outstanding representatives of the French Piano School. Vlado Perlemuter, who worked closely with Ravel on many of his compositions, demonstrates in this Paris recording of 1966 his superb mastery of the composer's 'Piano Concerto for the Left Hand'. Yvonne Lefebure, for whom many French composers of the day wrote music, was also a celebrated interpreter of Beethoven, as is impressively shown by the 'Piano Sonata Op.110' she performed for French television in 1963. Robert Casadesus, a great lover of French music, frequently played Debussy, Chabrier and Faure. In 1971, just before his death, he gave a short recital at his home for a French documentary, during which he performed excerpts from Faure's 'Theme et variations'.
