Description: We offered a reissue of a 1984 Harmonia Mundi double-disc set of Bizet piano music two years ago last month (08H053) which has most of the music here but there are four world premiere recordings on this new disc - the last four titles listed above which are Chansons-Mélodies Romances sans paroles by generic title and which belong to a group of pieces inspired by the French mélodie. Peter Vanhove (piano).
