Schmitt: Complete Piano Duet And Duo Works
Label: GRAND PIANO
Invencia Piano Duo
Florent Schmitt stands alongside Debussy and Ravel as one of the most original and inﬂuential French composers of his time. Winner of the Prix de Rome in 1900, Schmitt wrote successfully in many forms but he was a formidable pianist who described his often rich and multi-staved scores as “ﬁstfuls of piano”. His music for the instrument is colourful, ﬁlled with adventurous harmonic innovation, stylistic bravura and good humoured wit. This complete collection for piano duo and duet includes unpublished works and rarities.
