About

Undoubtedly the foremost French female pianist of the 20th century, Marguerite Long (1874–1966) prided herself on her personal friendships with some of the foremost composers of her day – Debussy, Fauré and Ravel. She championed their works, premiering Ravel’s G major Piano Concerto, and was to write books on the interpretation of each of them. This addition to our continuing French Piano School series is the first of two APR volumes, together containing her complete recordings of French repertoire, and of honorary Frenchman, Chopin.

Reviews

This collection is mostly devoted to music by Gabriel Fauré, including the exquisite Nocturne No 6 in D flat major ... Long played the Sixth Barcarolle to Fauré himself, and two recordings of the piece are included as part of APR’s programme, the earliest and gentler of the two from 1937, the more emphatic version dating from 20 years later. ... A truly excellent release, superbly transferred.  Rob Cowan
