Previously unissued recordings

After a first set dedicated to five Franch lady pianists (Tah 653-4), the present album is dedicated to two great French male pianists: Vlado Perlemuter and Robert Casadesus. The present recordings are all released for the first time. One of them is particularly moving, i.e. the Bach concerto for 3 keyboards performed by the Casadesus family (i.e. Gaby, Robert and their son fils Jean who died later in a car accident). As for Perlemuter, he was a great interpreter of Ravel and Chopin, but this performance of the Beethoven 3rd piano concerto – accompanied by the somewhat forgotten conductor Jean Martinon – is very touching.
