Alexandre Tansman was a close and lifelong friend of both Stravinsky and Milhaud, and two pieces on this disc, Stèle and Élégie, are dedicated to these composers respectively. Throughout his extensive and multifaceted oeuvre, reminiscences not only of these composers, but also of Polish folk music and Asian pentatonic music, can clearly be found.

Tansman composed his Concert Piece for the Left Hand whilst in American exile in 1943 but left it merely in the form of a piano score. For sixty-five years it remained unpublished until the Polish composer Piotr Moss produced a congenial orchestration in 2008. Cpo present the première recording.
