Description: Who knew that this song and operetta composer left this much piano music? Not me. And the longest work here - Le Rossignol éperdue, a collection of 53 piano "poems" in four volumes, takes up two whole discs and 144 minutes - isn't even a first recording. Dating from the period 1899-1910, each item has a descriptive title; I'll give you one each in each of the various languages: "Douloureuse rêverie dans un bois de sapin", "Liebe! Liebe!", "Nevermore" and "Per i piccoli canali". Many of the rest are waltzes even if they aren't titled that way (the earliest from a 9-year-old Hahn). Au clair de lune is an 18-minute, 11-part "conte en musique"; the Portraits are "after poems by Proust"; only the lovely and elegant 15-minute Sonatine from 1907 is in a larger form. Beautiful and evocative stuff to dip into a few at a time. * - World Premiere Recordings 4 CDs + DVD documentary. Cristina Ariagno (piano).
