Description: As with certain other remarkable composers, we offer every new recording of Alkan's music and this one has only the second recording of the half-hour long set of Morceaux (1838 - Marc-André Hamelin first recorded it 12 years ago [07D037]) whose titles (Aime-moi, Le vent and Morte) tell a tale of love, turbulence and death with all the startling originality and virtuosic demands you've come to expect. Vincenzo Maltempo (piano).
