Bertrand Chamayou (piano) & Orchestre National de France, Emmanuel Krivine

Following his award-winning survey of Ravel’s complete solo piano works, Bertrand Chamayou takes on some of the most brilliant yet fiendishly virtuosic music in the French Romantic repertoire on his new Saint-Saëns album, drawing together the two most famous of the composer-pianist’s five piano concertos – the epic No.2 and the irresistibly exotic No.5 ‘The Egyptian’ – alongside a bouquet of lesser-known solo pieces and études that will delight pianophiles. These include the effervescent yet notoriously difficult Étude en forme de Valse with its breathtaking bravura finale, and the entrancing Les Cloches de Las Palmas inspired by the bells Saint-Saëns heard ringing out in the Canary Islands.

‘I’m always charmed by Saint-Saëns,’ says Chamayou. ‘There’s an attraction to the exotic, the bizarre, sensual fantasy, that’s very curious for a composer that we think of as so academic. And there’s a real sense of voyage in the music of Saint-Saëns that I find fascinating.’

He is joined by the Orchestre National de France and its formidable conductor Emmanuel Krivine for an album that promises fireworks, champagne and just a few puffs of opium.

"Wat een verrukkelijke cd!

Camille Saint-Saëns componeerde zijn heroïsche tweede en exotische vijfde pianoconcerto met een tussenperiode van 30 jaar. Maar onder de virtuoze en briljante oppervlakte van beide concerto's schuilt eenzelfde sprankelende en verbeeldingsvolle wereld.

Bertrand Chamayou, ook wel 'de nieuwe prins van de Franse piano' genoemd, wordt hier uitstekend begeleid door het Orchestre National de France o.l.v. Emmanuel Krivine: een hoogst succesvolle samenwerking, vol vreugde en elan.

De bonussen, 7 werken voor piano solo, waaronder een onweerstaanbare 'Valse nonchalante', maken deze nieuwe Erato-uitgave nog aantrekkelijker!
Bart Tijskens - Klara's oordeel *****

"The nimbleness and fluidity of his playing is remarkable. It’s a zingy performance (of the Second Concerto) all round, with a vigorous performance from the Orchestre National de France, conducted by Emmanuel Krivine…The recording is rounded off with a handful of solo pieces…There are some beautiful gems here."
BBC Music Magazine - November 2018 ****

[Concerto No. 2] Chamayou and Krivine give a sparkling performance, full of wit and grace, highlighting the dramatic passages in a performance as good as any I have heard. Their account of the Egyptian Fifth is equally impressive, perhaps marginally outpointing Hough and Oramo. With terrific sound, this is a highly recommendable release."
