This wonderful and quite rare 3CD set from Adès (20.001, made in the EU, ADD stereo, booklet included) entilted "Mon Ami Piano · 42 pièces de Bach a Strawinsky · A la Découverte du Piano" features a remarkable voyage of discovery through the piano literature, from the 'Les Classiques' to 'Les Compositors du XX Siècle' with the remarkable French pianist Michèle Boegner as guide, an arist of uncommon eloquence and poetic insight whose sterling technique is allied to a luminous bell-like tone – this is magical playing.

Anything by Boegner is worth seeking out and this 3CD set – essentially an historical recital series – remains among the most successful undertaken by one pianist on record – a delight!
