Notes and Editorial Reviews

o A delightful programme of French music for two pianos and four hands from Onyx artist Pascal Rogé and his wife Ami. The music is a mix of the urbane, witty, tender, passionate and dramatic - from Saint-Saëns' sparkling 'Wedding Cake' Caprice, to the passion and eroticism of Ravel's 'La Valse',the drama of The Sorcerer's Apprentice by Dukas and the gentle and sophisticated romanticism of Faure's Dolly Suite. o Paul Chihara's 'Ami Suite' was written for Pascal and Ami, and here receives its world premiere recording. o A delightful programme of French music for two pianos and four hands from Onyx artist Pascal Rogé and his wife Ami.
