Stephen Hough (piano)
Chaminade’s Pierrette is a feisty young lady, all flounces and ruffles, her gay insouciance contrasted by Autrefois, a charming pastiche evoking former times and, once again, Scarlatti’s alternating exuberance and introspection.

from notes by Bryce Morrison © 1999

La Pierrette de Chaminade est une jeune femme pleine d’entrain, toute en volants et dentelles, dont la gaie insouciance contraste avec Autrefois, charmant pastiche évoquant les temps jadis et, une fois encore, l’exubérance et l’introspection de Scarlatti.

extrait des notes rédigées par Bryce Morrison © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Chaminades Pierette ist eine lebhafte, in Volants und Rüschen gekleidete junge Frau, deren frohe Sorglosigkeit im Kontrast zu Autrefois steht, einem charmanten Pasticcio, das frühere Zeiten und wiederum Scarlattis Wechsel von Überschwang zu Besinnlichkeit beschwört.
