'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)

Thème Varié in A major, Op 89
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Chaminade’s Thème varié, Op 89 in A major, is a short, informal set of variations – essentially decorative elaborations of a lilting, mock-classical tune. There are chiming effects, and two A minor variations with sonorous arpeggio writing. At the end the arpeggio decoration entwines with a partial reprise of the theme.
