With its evocatively impressionistic images of seascapes, the night and Spain, Sillages is amongst the most significant French piano works of the early 20th century.
The intensely expressive and impassioned Violin Sonata is Aubert’s only large-scale work in abstract Classical form, and the distinctive Feuille d’images is a varied collection of educational pieces.
The fiery Habanera, Aubert’s most frequently performed orchestral work, is heard in the composer’s own transcription for piano four hands.
Jean-Pierre Armengaud has enjoyed a long international career as a pianist, with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Boulez, appearances in more than forty countries and a series of important and acclaimed recordings. A pupil of Yves Nat and Jacques Février, and, in Russia, of Stanislav Neuhaus, he is one of the leading interpreters of French music from Rameau to Henri Dutilleux.
Alessandro Fagiuoli graduated from the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice, followed by study with Enzo Porta of twentieth-century violin repertoire. He specialises in contemporary music, and in bringing collaborations with important new music ensembles and the creation of the Paul Klee Quartet, with which he is first violinist and soloist.
Pianist Olivier Chauzu trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, where he obtained First Prize for Piano followed by First Prize in Chamber music, studying under Gabriel Tacchino, Théodore Paraschivesko, Jean-Claude Pennetier and György Sebök. He was also a pupil of Leon Fleisher, Vitaly Margoulis and Dimitri Bashkirov before further studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts in Alberta, Canada. A prizewinner in Barcelona’s 1989 Maria Canals International competition, he went on to be awarded the Prix Claude Debussy in the Yvonne Lefébure competition in Saint-Germain-en-Laye the following year.
