Description: Bizet’s piano works range from the salon-style pieces from his mid-teens through the “Songs without Words” Chants (1865), wordless settings of poems by Joseph Méry, to the powerful Variations of 1868 which call out for the orchestration that Felix Weingartner gave them in 1933. Johann Blanchard (1901 Steinway D).
