Pianist Laurent Wagschal in recital

Post by Rach3 » Fri Dec 14, 2018 4:43 pm

This pianist, possibly new to me ( I may have a Naxos cd of him playing works of Deodat de Severac ) re-creates in Madrid, 2015, a Ricardo Vines - style recital. An interesting selection of works, some new to me , eg. the Moreau a little gem.Very fine playing ( despite a miss at the very end of the Franck ; bit more sonority would have been helpful in the Debussy ) :

César Franck (1822-1890) 
Prelude, Chorale and Fugue

Ernest Chausson 
Paysage, Op 38

Vincent D'Indy (1851-1931) 
Lac Vert and La Poste (Tableux de voyage)

Theme and Variations in C sharp minor, Op 73

Gustav Samazeuilh (1877-1967) 
Suite in G minor (Prelude)

Henry Février (1875-1957) 

Léon Moreau (1876-1940)

René-Emmanuel Baton (1879-1940)
