  • Reviews

    What a joy to come across this new recording of Chopin by Jean-Philippe Collard, his first in about three decades. And to discover his playing essentially unchanged, still with the same sense of an overview and naturalness in the phrasing, quite strong-fingered, tough and yet tender!

    Le piano de Fauré : entretien avec Jean-Philippe Collard

    Il faut un certain courage pour programmer Fauré dans un récital ! Cette musique intime, qui ne cherche aucun effet, n’attire pas les foules… elle est aussi difficile à jouer qu’à garder en mémoire. Et pourtant, c’est un bonheur.

Jean-Philippe Collard, Chopin, Ballades
  • CHOPIN - 4 Ballades, Piano Sonata No.3

    Ballades No. 1-4
    Piano Sonata No. 3 in B minor, Op. 58

  • Focus

    A salutary recording to listen to!
    Particularly notable is Collard’s performance of the most challenging of the Ballades, the F-minor, as it moves from dreamy beauty to electrifying drama. The acoustic of the recording goes a long way in creating its atmosphere.

  • Focus

    Collard plays these works with subtlety, taste, refinement. He plays Saint-Saëns the philosopher, letting the music speak for itself.

    In addition, on this bargain priced 2 CD set, we get two bonuses for piano and orchestra. The “Wedding Cake” Caprice-Valse was composed for a friends wedding, charming and pianistic.

    The Fantasy Africa reflects Saint-Saens’ love of the East, full of indigenous rhythms and harmonies, with an exhilirating coda based on a Tunisian folk song.

    Buying this CD set proves that there is a whole world of music out there, waiting to be discovered. While certainly not as deep or complex as the world of Beethoven or Wagner, Saint-Saens represents the last bastion of Romantic elegance in a world repidly decaying.

    A joy in every respect; music, performance, recording and price.
