Notes and Editorial Reviews

Everyone knows 'L'apprenti Sorcier', and his fine opera 'Ariane et Barbe - Bleue' is regularly performed to this day. But what of the other works by Paul Dukas? He was active during a period when French music was flourishing - Debussy was almost his contemporary, Ravel was a little younger - and he was among those who contributed to its excellence. Perfectionism accounts for the surprisingly small number of major works Dukas allowed to be published, as well as for the many projected works that never saw completion. His 'Sonata in E flat minor' is regarded as one of the very finest of all French piano works.
