Saint-Saëns: Complete Piano Works Volume 1
Complete Piano Études
Geoffrey Burleson (piano)
A seminal figure of French Romantic music, Camille Saint-Saëns was also a great keyboard prodigy. The Études, Op. 52 unite exuberant virtuosity with shimmering delicacy, while the Six Études, Op. 111 pay homage to Chopin and Bach as well as anticipating Ravel’s impressionism. The neo-Baroque Op. 135, for left hand alone, is modelled on Couperin and Rameau.
This title is the first volume of a series that brings together everything from Saint-Saëns’ spellbinding three sets of études to first recordings of transcriptions and other works.
“As a performer, Geoffrey Burleson is perfectly competent but by no means great... The production is impressive: every release this year will feature stylish cover paintings by Gro Thorsen, and the excellent booklet essay is in English and French” MusicWeb International, August 2012

The piano compositions by Saint-Saëns on this recording premiere are a kaleidoscopic reflection of various epochs and a listening tour through the musical hall of fame with their reminiscences of Bach, Mendelssohn, Chopin and Liszt: gripping and fascinating music, full of elegance and sparkling wit. On this CD, Mi-Joo Lee offers a masterful interpretation of these works by a romantic genius.
“The young Korean pianist Mi-Joo Lee plays this material superbly, with elegance of style, sensitivity to its musical content, and taking all its virtuosic demands in stride. The piano sound may be the most life-like I have ever heard. An enjoyable disc.” American Record Guide
