Notes & Reviews:

Hearing Albéniz's Iberia caused Gabriel Pierné a real shock, leading him to surpass the very conventional limits of his piano style and attack the realm of the 'grand piano', first with the intimidating Variations in C minor then, at the end of his life, the Passacaglia. These highly complex works command admiration with their power, the virtuosity of the writing and the sumptuousness of the sound. These two monuments bracket lighter works: the Étude concert, almost a compulsory piece for every budding virtuoso, and the delightful autumnal Nocturne en forme de valse.
