Description: This first volume traces the young Lourié’s journey from the Debussian Impressionism of his youthful préludes fragiles (1908-10) through the absorption of Scriabin's chromaticism in the eerie Masques of 1913 to the near-Cubism of Formes en l'air. Although Lourie was lauded - or derided - as a pioneering Futurist, his post-Revolutionary writing in France embraced a nostalgic neo-classicism represented by the Petite Suite of 1926; there is no date given in the notes for the four-minute Dialogue which is described as “a free fantasia of contrasting thematic ideas”. Giorgio Koukl (piano).
