'Superlative. Immaculately and sensitively performed. Sound and presentation are superb. It would be hard to imagine one of music's most neglected byways illuminated with more pianistic ease and affection' (Gramophone)

'This is charming, formidably accomplished stuff. Hamelin gives impeccably stylish and sympathetic readings, as if he's been playing them since the cradle. Probably he has' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A fine conspectus of a captivating composer. Russian champagne of glowing vintage' (Classic CD)

'Un disque rempli de joie, de poésie et de lumière' (Le Devoir)

Valse, Op 36

Valse Op 36  [2'35]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Despite being published as part of Catoire’s Op 36 the charming Waltz actually dates from Catoire’s earliest years. It is technically quite demanding, with repeated notes and a constantly winding theme of semitonal inflexion.
