Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bizet, Fauré, Debussy and Ravel, each with his own style and individual colors, gazed with wonder on the world of childhood. This collection of their works for piano duet evokes the colorful and naïve universe of the child. Much more than mere salon pieces, these charming works transport the listener to the land of dreams. Performed here by the impressive four-hands duo of Claire Désert and Emmanuel Strosser, they are tender, sensuous, touching and sincere. Repertoire includes Fauré's Dolly, Bizet's Jeux d'enfants, Debussy's Petite Suite and Ravel's Ma mére l'Oye.
