Description: It's been almost 12 years since the Massenet appeared in Hyperion's "Romantic Piano Concerto" series, so we offer this 2006 release which fell between the cracks as Alpha kept switching U.S. distributors. A late work (1903) by a composer who was not primarily a pianists, the concerto seemed doomed to oblivion (although its Airs slovaques finale is quite memorable). So it's very nice that this Turkish pianist who, long before she became known for the many recordings she made for Naxos, had done much for various European labels, including the first complete Beethoven/Liszt symphony cycle for EMI, has given us one more chance to appreciate it. Idil Biret (piano), Bilkent Symphony Orchestra; Alain Pâris.
