It was in these terms that Ferruccio Busoni greeted the publication in 1908 of the 14 Bagatelles, in which Béla Bartók conveyed the violent aesthetic impact of his discovery of authentic Hungarian peasant music. Over the next 20 years, up to the magisterial Sonata of 1926, he indefatigably refined an innovative pianistic language: pungent, dissonant, percussive, with multiple new playing techniques, that was to influence the entire 20th century. A master of every style, from Haydn to Boulez by way of Chopin and Chabrier, Alain Planès is revealed here as a Bartókian of the front rank.

That is what happens with the everlasting pianists who are embarking on an n-th recording Chopin, Liszt or Rachmaninov: works for piano by Jean Cras! Cras, whose life and career was, in a sense, a poem of art and the sea: composer, he said he was a slave to music, Rear Admiral (and Major General in command of the Port of Brest, by the way) and Considered himself master of the sea. He never chose between these devouring vocations, pursued the two with equal happiness, even if the collective memories remember more easily a composer and his works written to (Even if, until the advent of the electronic calculator, its "Cras Rule" was an indispensable instrument of navigation!).

After a first recording of Chopin's Preludes for Piano and the First Prize of the Géza Anda Competition in 2015, which allowed him to develop his career, the young American pianist Andrew Tyson designed a new program tailored to his needs: two sonatas, one Waltz Scriabine and Mirrors of Ravel. Andrew Tyson has chosen to bring together these two composers whose language seems to be far away but which nevertheless have many similarities, in particular their use of tone, certain harmonies and dissonances. Alexandre Scriabine and Maurice Ravel also lived in the same city, at the same time, without ever meeting: Debussy, Ravel and the French musical elite of the time considered their Russian colleagues as coarse and uneducated. Yet, listening to their music, even though their approach to piano and composition could not be any different, they use colors in the same way. For Andrew Tyson, "Ravel is a perfectionist of elegance, where every detail is calculated and shines like a crystal; Scriabin is like an erratic flame - passionate, disorderly, spontaneous and erotic."

A discourse on the subject of Italian instrumental music would not be effective without mentioning two crucial issues: the constant temptation of the lyricism and “singability” of an operatic nature on one hand; and keeping the distance from that same temptation, on the other. The Kammer-Fantasie über Bizets Carmen, “chamberfantasy” by Ferruccio Busoni, immediately launch us into this duplicity.
