Notes and Editorial Reviews

"It becomes increasingly clear to me, that the nature of music can not be forced into a strict, prescribed form. It is made up of colors and rhythmical time." Claude Debussy had characterized his musical understanding most accurately himself: a musical understanding which we would like to narrow down to "musical impressionism;" a circumscription which by no means can do justice to Debussy's music. He strove for aesthetical sound coupled with clarity, form and unity. He was a musical dreamer and this musical dreaming is apparent in all of his compositions, but it is especially in his intimate piano pieces which succeed in conveying his musical ideas without compromise. Jean-Pierre Armengaud studied in Paris with Jacques Fevrier and at the Read more Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow with Stanislas Neuhaus. His international reputation is based on his highly regarded interpretations of the French repertoire from Chabrier to Dutilleux. He is a truly multi-faceted musician who has instructed at many fine institutions and universities, taught master classes as well as having authored several musicological articles. Read less
