FRENCH MUSIC

Aline Piboule, piano

Following a first solo CD devoted to Fauré and Dutilleux, Aline Piboule continues her exploration of the French school of piano music by inviting us to discover works by Louis Aubert, Pierre-Octave Ferroud, Gustave Samazeuilh and Abel Decaux – rare and unknown compositions which she has chosen for their harmonic richness, melodic quality and poetic inspiration. The music of these contemporaries of Debussy and Ravel (Louis Aubert gave the first performance of Valses nobles et sentimentales) was played at the time by major pianists (Marguerite Long, Francis Planté and Alfred Cortot). Aline Piboule restores these forgotten masters to the position they deserve in early 20th century French music.
