The Alsace-born pianist Marie Jaëll is today mostly known within music history because of her pedagogic works. This image does not meet all the bequeathed information on her life and work: the once celebrated piano player and wise pedagogue left a rich and impressive compositional oeuvre not only for her own instrument. Influenced by the spirit of romanticism, but also by the creative independence of the well-educated Parisian dame de salon, but above all by her reputed extraordinary virtuosity she developed her distinctive style, which appears attractive not only to enthusiasts of piano music from the romantic era.

This CD is the third of a series of recordings by Cora Irsen. The “details” and miniature collections, selected here in this third dic and added into a diverse programme, are evidence of technical mastery in the most diverse atmospheric, conceptual and illustrative manifestations. At the same time, they show all the virtues to bestow upon piano music new inspiration that was unusual for its time and occasionally even unexpected. For example, in several “imitative” sections of Les Jours pluvieux (1894), Marie Jaëll moves into a compositionally aesthetic future, which is reminiscent of  the Poèmes and other mood pieces by Alexander Skriabin.
