Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Here is an important historical sound document... Cécile Louise Stéphane Chaminade (1857-1944) virtually invented French salon music and to be able to hear her complete recordings for the first time since they were made a century ago is an illustration of the medium of the Compact Disc at its best... To hear Saint-Saëns himself in an extract from the first movement of the G minor Concerto (sans orchestre) is truly wondrous... Saint-Saëns is every bit as facile and dextrous as contemporary reports suggest, constantly pushing the music forward ­ sometimes impatiently ­ in playing of great character and finesse...The compilations, transfers production and notes are...a class act."
