Tah 591 - French Pianistes (#1): Nat, Lazare-Lévy, Meyer
Chopin: Sonata No. 2 (Yves Nat, Paris 1953), Schumann: Fantasiestücke, Debussy: Masques, Lazare-Lévy : Prelude No. 1 (Lazare-Lévy, 1955), Chabrier: 9 pieces for piano (Meyer, 1955)
This CD is the first of a series dedicated to some great pianists of the Twentieth century, and included two previously unissued recordings: the Chopin Second Piano sonata by Yves Nat, from the famous recital that he gave in 1953 at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, and Chabrier's nine Pièces pour Piano, by Marcelle Meyer, recorded by the Italian Radio in Rome in 1955. The Fantasiestücke by Schumann come from the broadcast of a public recital that Lazare-Lévy gave in Warsaw in February 1955 and existed for a long time only on a very rare Polish "Muza" LP. We have included as a bonus both sides of a very rare 78 Gramophone rpm of 1929, with Lazare-Lévy playing Debussy and a prelude that he composed himself.
