A seminal figure of French Romantic music, Camille Saint-Saëns was also a great keyboard prodigy. The Études, Op. 52 unite exuberant virtuosity with shimmering delicacy, while the Six Études, Op. 111 pay homage to Chopin and Bach as well as anticipating Ravel’s impressionism. The neo-Baroque Op. 135, for left hand alone, is modelled on Couperin and Rameau.

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.

“As a performer, Geoffrey Burleson is perfectly competent but by no means great... The production is impressive: every release this year will feature stylish cover paintings by Gro Thorsen, and the excellent booklet essay is in English and French”
