About

The year 1888 was a remarkable one for French pianist-composer Cécile Chaminade. Her large-scale “ballet symphonique” Callirhoë was produced at Marseilles on 16 March, and a few weeks later, on 18 April, there followed the Concertstück for piano and orchestra, well received in Antwerp and soon across the world. Here they make a cherishable coupling, and Callirhoë is recorded in its complete form for the first time, proving to be a delightful and varied discovery. Chaminade is remembered for her many piano miniatures and mélodies, but soloist Victor Sangiorgio’s brilliant performance of the Concertstück for piano and orchestra, in which he effortlessly projects its flamboyant pianism, reminds us of what a romantic and affecting composer Chaminade could be when given an extended musical canvas.
