Piano Works, Vol. I

--- digital release ---

Available on all streaming and download platforms

A name like something out of a fairy-tale book or a medieval novel: Vincent d’Indy, one of music history’s great forgotten figures. And his music is also as rich as the French saga-treasures, as full of variety as the people between the Seine and the Rhone, so lightly dotted or shining through with sunshine as the paintings of Claude Monet. There is a great deal to discover on this first D’Indy CD from GENUIN, recorded so virtuosic, colourfully and juicily by Michael Schäfer that one can literally see the alpine meadows of the poetic piano works floating above the piano. Intimate pictures of the soul, a sensitive, bold tonal language: there is really something to discover here for all friends of piano music and French culture! Allez-y!

International Record Review
"Vincent d'Indy's keyboard works have been almost entirely neglected on disc, so this first volume of a projected recording of his complete piano works is overdue. It has been beautifully produced, with a very clear and well balanced recording ... Michael Schäfer plays with great commitment and refinement and it is good that his repertoire is now available on dics." International Record Review, July/August 2007.

Michael Schäfer is maintaining the high standard of his Scott publication and will hopefully be continuing his expedition through the unknown piano literature of the past 200 years for a long time (klassik.com).

"It is good to have some Vincent d`Indy´s solo piano music on disc"
