Notes & Reviews:

The destiny of those who die young - Mozart, Schubert, or Jehan Alain - has a special impact on posterity; their precocious genius is an object of endless speculation. It is thus that Jehan Alain, who died during the war in his 30th year, seemed to have been conditioned by the premonition of his tragic death. Working without a break or rest, Jehan Alain expressed himself in music, drawing, and poetry, and this artistic output represented the happiness and purpose of his life.

Fanfare Magazine, July / August 2012
Without my really knowing more than the Chorale Dorien from prior exposure, I can only say that pianist Jean DubT is a fine stylist who tries not to impose his personality on the music. In a sense this is good, because it gives us a chance to judge Alain on his own merits. Since these are the only available recordings of most of these pieces, this disc is extremely valuable. In my view, Alain still needed to grow and change, but since he never got the opportunity to do so we must take his music as it stands - a very special and personal style, rather like hothouse flowers that never had the chance to grow or be crossbred with other flowers. This, then, is a very welcome disc.
