Description: Roussel's personal mixture of Debussian lyrical chromaticism and Franckian counterpoint in the only available set of his complete piano works. We offered a Brilliant Classics two-disc set of Roussel's complete piano music in September of last year (09O046) but hardened collectors should note that it did not contain his own piano version of the music for the 1908 stage work "The Sandman" which gets its first recording here. Jean-Pierre Armengaud (piano).
