Le chant de la mer


Olivier Chauzu (piano)

A pupil of Dukas and a lifelong friend of Ravel, the composer, pianist and critic Gustave Samazeuilh was a central figure in Parisian musical life over many decades.

His skill as a pianist can be heard in the majestic colours and intense virtuosity of Le Chant de la mer (The song of the sea). From the Classical discipline of the Suite en sol (Suite in G) to the later Nocturne (the composer’s transcription of his symphonic poem Nuit), and Quatre Esquisses (Four Sketches), Samazeuilh’s voice emerges as one of remarkable originality and superb musical realisation.

A prizewinner in Barcelona’s 1989 Maria Canals International competition, Olivier Chauzu trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, where he obtained First Prize for Piano followed by First Prize in Chamber Music, studying under Gabriel Tacchino, Théodore Paraschivesko, Jean-Claude Pennetier and György Sebök. He was also a pupil of Leon Fleisher, Vitaly Margoulis and Dimitri Bashkirov before further studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts in Alberta, Canada. His recordings of Isaac Albéniz’s Iberia, Paul Dukas’ complete piano works and selected piano pieces by Schumann and Beethoven have all received critical acclaim.

Évocation


Having mysteriously disapeared from the current repertory over the past few decades, Gustave Samazeuilh left an attractive body piano works that has drawn the attention of Stéphane Lemelin. A student of Ernest Chausson until that composer's death, Samazeuilh entered the Schola Cantorum in 1900 and studied with Vincent D'Indy and Paul Dukas. Although he always remained faithful to the discipline of craftsmanship he acquired under D'Indy's tutelage, Samazeuilh's style is strongly influenced by Debussy and eschews the academic dryness which often characterizes the work of D'Indy's disciples.
