Reviews

'Jacobs treats the music with affection, but also respect; he's served by an excellent recording' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'Well worth the attention of those who enjoy piano music that seeks merely to soothe, charm and enchant' (Gramophone)

'In this well recorded, presented and imaginatively conceived issue we see again just how well Hyperion can produce the goods! It is a particular pleasure to see this issue on the market' (CDReview)
L’Ondine, Op 101, published in 1900, is a little tone-picture of the eponymous water nymph – and of course very unlike Ravel’s tour de force of tenebrous virtuosity in Gaspard de la nuit. Here an enchanting tune is borne upon a rippling accompaniment which develops into a middle section of glittering, veloce liquid arpeggios, whose watery motion eventually forms the coda of the piece.

L’Ondine, opus 101, qui fut publiée en 1900, est un petit portrait symphonique de l’éponyme nymphe des eaux – et bien sûr, très différent du tour de force de virtuosité ténébreuse de Ravel, dans Gaspard de la nuit. Dans le morceau de Chaminade, un air charmant porté par un accompagnement ondulant qui se développe en une section centrale de scintillants et limpides arpèges veloce, dont le mouvement liquide forme la coda du morceau.

L’Ondine, Op. 101, im Jahr 1900 veröffentlicht, ist ein kleines Tongemälde der im Titel genannten Wassernymphe – und natürlich ganz anders geartet als Ravels Tour de force finsterer Virtuosität in Gaspard de la nuit. Hier wird eine zauberhafte Melodie auf plätschernder Begleitung davongetragen, aus der sich ein Mittelteil funkelnder, veloce bezeichneter, flüssiger Arpeggien ergibt, deren strömende Bewegung schließlich die Coda des Stücks bildet.
