Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Anyone who knows Ader's recordings of Debussy and Messiaen already understands just how perceptive a musician she is. More than her refined sense of keyboard color, she has an ability to project musical architecture through the phrasing of large paragraphs, which serves Franck particularly well. Thus, the two fugues build effortlessly from beginning to end, with exceptionally clear voicing and an unerring sense of where the music is going." -- David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com [reviewing Alice Ader playing Franck, Fuga Libera 209]

Every disc of Alice Ader holds a special place in the world of piano. This one is no exception.
Read more From the first bars of Une Larme, Mussorgsky's inner world is revealed. This new 2-CD set, which includes the complete piano works from the composer of Boris Godunov flies by and let us deeply marked. And the Tableaux d'une exposition, magnificently interpreted here, is not Mussorgsky's only work of art: there are also about fifteen other pieces plus a transcription of Une nuit sur le Mont Chauve by Rimsky-Korsakov. A summit meeting between a great lady of the piano and the work of a furious genius.
