Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gifted pianist Samson François (1924-1970) is featured in this fine 3 CD set covering music by Chopin, Debussy and Ravel.

"The most important pianist in postwar France. There was something of the swashbuckler about him; his playing was as daring as it was rhapsodic, but also notable for its uncompromising integrity and extraordinary intelligence." - John Bell Young, St Petersburg Times, Florida [May 5, 2002]
