Saint-SaŽns was a piano prodigy, eulogised by Liszt amongst many others. His facility to evoke scenes, personalities and colours was profound, along with his ingenious use of baroque and classical forms.

Saint-SaŽnsís first published works for piano were these vivid and characterful Six Bagatelles, Op.3.

Album, Op.72 dates from Saint-SaŽnsís mid-career and teems with rich colours and textures Ė haunting and exciting alike. Also included is the richly evocative tone poem Rhapsodie díAuvergne.

Geoffrey Burleson has performed to wide acclaim throughout Europe and North America, and is equally active as a recitalist, concerto soloist, chamber musician and jazz performer. His numerous solo appearances include prominent venues in Paris, New York, Rome, Athens, Mexico City, Rotterdam, Chicago, Boston, Washington, Switzerland, England, Spain, and elsewhere.

ďOnly a brilliant piano technician can perform these 18 knuckle-busters and Burleson is such a pianistÖhis ability and stamina to get through these and make music out of them is nothing short of amazingĒ Ė American Record Guide (July 2012) on Saint-SaŽns Complete Piano Works Vol.1 (GP601)
