Notes & Reviews:

Saint-Saëns' first published works for piano were the vivid and characteristic Six Bagatelles, which set the tone for the popularity of his character pieces. Pianist Geoffrey Burleson has a facility with Saint-Saëns' works, his subtle and sensitive playing allowing the pieces evoke scenes, personalities, and colors as they will.

Gramophone
The Rhapsodie d'Auvergne... fizzes with energy after its folksong start and the ambitious 1867 Caprice has a notably witty finale. Yet arguably the most personal voice is found in Les cloches du soir and in the concluding Feuillet d'album... all this music is played with verve and commitment by Burleson...
