French Romantic Repertoire introduces the pianist to a fascinating world of charm and sophistication; a music distinguished by its balance of logic and clarity with emotion. Here, piano works of France's great masters including Debussy, Delibes, Massenet, Franck and Saint-Saëns are brought together with lesser-known composers such as Godard, Alkan and Chausson. Meticulously selected and edited, these books range from intermediate to moderately difficult.
Stephen Coombs has established an enviable reputation as a player of romantic piano music and his numerous recordings for Hyperion records have been met with terrific acclaim.
