The sheer attractiveness of Saint-Saëns's music has ensured its immortality in the canon of French romantic composers. Spanning almost four decades, his five piano concertos vary widely in character but offer some of his most exciting if unorthodox creations, and represent an important evolutionary phase in the French piano concerto. The Piano Concerto No. 1 in D major, widely considered the first by a major French composer, is a youthful and exuberant piece, and the virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor is one of Saint-Saëns's most popular and frequently performed works in any genre.

Gramophone Magazine

June 2017

“Money well spend: a young(ish) French pianist (b1980) with a polished technique and an innate affinity with his countryman’s idiom, well recorded, with first-class accompaniment from the genial Marc Soustrot”

MusicWeb International

“Descharmes has a special way with this music that’s really quite liberating”
