Notes & Reviews:

Maurice Emmanuel's most famous works are his sonatas for solo piano. Representative of his eclectic academic interests, his compositions draw upon various influences such as birdsong, Burgundian folk song, and Hindu influences. Also included is a bonus DVD with exclusive interview material.

Both sonatinas not wearing subtitle should not be neglected: its language much more advanced, the Third (1920) marks a clear break with the previous two, although qu'éditée the same time (three being dedicated to Isidore Philipp), and hit by the splendor of his Andante tranquillo central, while brévissime Sixth (1925), dedicated to Yvonne Lefebure, is exemplary in turn fluidity, eye level and spirit, as a perfect summary of the art of Maurice Emmanuel, admirably served by the virtuosity and musicality touch Wagschal Laurent.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The results can be heard in these six sonatinas performed deftly and convincingly by Laurent Wagschal. They are also filled with a playful and joyous spirit in their exploration of unusual dance rhythms and modalities that range from Hindu to Burgundian. This is fascinating and rewarding music, and together with excerpts from some chamber works on the DVD, makes a compelling case for hearing more of this composer.
