The Alsace born pianist Marie JaŽll is today mostly known within music history because of her pedagogic works. The celebrated piano player and wise pedagogue left a rich and impressive compositional oeuvre not just for her own instrument.

Influenced by the spirit of romanticism, but also by the creative independency of the well-educated Parisian 'dame de salon', and mostly by her reputed extraordinary virtuosity, she developed her distinctive style, which is attractive not just to enthusiasts of piano music from the romantic era.

This CD is the second part of a series of recordings by Cora Irsen. The pianist discovers the huge oeuvre written by JaŽll for piano. '18 piŤces pour piano díaprŤs la lecture de Dante' represents an exceptional composition within the era. In this cycle following Danteís 'The Divine Comedy', the composer appears as one of the precursors of modern music thinking and specifically of the French impressionist piano school, by challenging the possibilities of her instrument in an extremely intelligent way.
