Notes & Reviews:

Bruno Fontaine is not only a conductor, composer, and arranger; he is also celebrated for his career as a concert soloist and subtle accompanist. This free-spirited third album follows his collaboration with the Flâneries Musicales de Reims and the TransArt label. Distinguished for his recording of Mozart's piano sonatas, which earned him critical acclaim, this atypical and brilliant pianist's work emits a vibrant sincerity. The orchestra, led by one of America's most interesting conductors, offers an exceptional setting for this extraordinary pianist.
