A seminal figure of French Romantic music, Camille Saint-Saens was also a great keyboard prodigy. The Etudes, Op. 52 unite exuberant virtuosity with shimmering delicacy, while the Six etudes, Op. 111 pay homage to Chopin and Bach as well as anticipating Ravel's impressionism. The neo-Baroque Op. 135, for left hand alone, is modelled on Couperin and Rameau. This title is the first volume of a series that brings together everything from Saint-Saens' spellbinding three sets of etudes to first recordings of transcriptions and other works.GEOFFREY BURLESON
