Polish by birth, Alexandre Tansman settled in France in 1919 where he soon joined the ranks of the most prominent French and other European composers and musicians of the time. After many years of undeserved neglect, his vast catalogue of music is being rediscovered and enjoyed today. Ranging from tranquil lyricism to tragic gravity, Tansman’s highly sophisticated 24 Intermezzi are a form of intimate musical diary, written at a time when the composer’s life was divided between Europe and the USA.

Alexandre Tansman: Valse-impromptu


Gramophone Magazine

March 2011

“Brief, fluid and exotic, [the first two books] are alive with many unnerving twists of harmony and direction...[Reyes's] performances are memorably refined, dextrous and committed. She is excellently recorded and this is clearly a disc for explorers.”
