Arrangements and elaborations for solo piano of songs made famous by Edith Piaf (1915-1963) and songs by Francis Poulenc (1899-1963). 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of Both Edith Piaf and Francis Poulenc. The Rascal and the Sparrow brings together the art of both of these musical icons for the first time: Songs made famous by Piaf and Poulenc's own art songs are given a new voice through elegant arrangements for solo piano. Though the two may never have met, their two personalities possessed many points in common. Poulenc's original work for solo piano, his Improvisation #15 "Hommage a Edith Piaf", is the inspiration and the bridge between their worlds on this album. Antonio Pompa-Baldi makes his Steinway label debut with this release. His own arrangements of the Poulenc songs weave through Italian composer Roberto Piana's "elaborations" of Piaf's music, creating an ingenious and beautiful musical conversation.
