Description: Back in September 2013 we offered a 1999 recording of this French composer's piano music that we had missed on its first release (09P046). See there for a bit more on the large work Le chant de la mer and Samazeuilh's place in the Ravel-Debussy continuum. This release offers 12 minutes of music not on the earlier disc, including the ten-minute Nocturne, a 1938 trancription of a tone poem (Nuit) from 1924 which deals in the somber mystery of the night, interrupted by a passionate central interlude. This is its World Premiere Recording. Olivier Chauzu (piano).
