Notes & Reviews:

A seminal figure of French Romantic music, Camille Saint-Saëns was also a great keyboard prodigy. This title is the first volume of a series that brings together everything from Saint-Saëns' spellbinding three sets of études to first recordings of transcriptions and other works. Geoffrey Burleson has performed to wide acclaim throughout Europe and North America, and is equally active as a recitalist, concerto soloist, chamber musician and jazz performer. "A top-notch pianist. Burleson's piquancy and poetry blended beautifully." - The Washington Post

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Recorded sound and booklet notes (by Burleson) are absolutely first class.
