“Doyen of the instrument and most influential player of his generation, Cahuzac proves to have been a composer of taste and craftsmanship...Played with warmth and panache.”
“I shouldn’t overlook the sensitive pianism of Christine Lagniel in a number of these pieces...Cuper pays fine homage to one of the masters of the instrument and the sound quality is excellent.”
