Among the rediscovered treasures are recordings of three outstanding representatives of the French Piano School:Vlado Perlemuter, who worked closely with Ravel on many of his compositions, demonstrates his superb mastery of the composer's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand in this Paris recording of 1966; Yvonne Lefébure, also well known for the multitude of compositions dedicated to her, goes from strength to strength with her Beethoven interpretations; Robert Casadesus proves himself yet again as an outstanding interpreter of French repertoire.

The two bonus tracks feature Hephzibah Menuhin, who studied for several years in Paris with Marcel Ciampi, and Dino Ciani who came to perfect his art under the guidance of Alfred Cortot.

****

“Valuable for the exquisite tone of Perlemuter's Chopin and the intensity of Lefébure's Beethoven. Casadesus dabbles bittily at Fauré.”
