Description: Many of Schmitt's piano works were later orchestrated and vice versa; he wrote much orchestral piano music and these suites of dances and character pieces sound like piano reductions of orchestral originals - even though they're not (Une semaine and Reflets were later orchestrated). The latter is a sensitively colored sequence of a child's dreams (brought by the elf of the title, "Shut-Eye"); Feuillets is rather Schumannian in its ten delicate, nostalgic album leaves and Reflets is a stylistically widely variegated set of eight waltzes you'll hope for an orchestral recording of. Christian Ivaldi & Jean-Claude Pennetier (piano).
