'A thoroughly enjoyable 69 minutes in the company of Tanyel and Moszkowski' (International Record Review)
Bizet’s Carmen needs no introduction, but among the dozens of piano fantasies on its themes the Polish composer and pianist Moritz Moszkowski produced a notable and brilliant act of homage to the original in this noble transcription, first published in 1906.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 2004

Nul besoin de présenter Carmen de Bizet. Mais, parmi les dizaines de fantaisies pour piano que ses thèmes inspirèrent, la noble transcription du compositeur et pianiste polonais Moritz Moszkowski (publiée pour la première fois en 1906) est un remarquable et brillant hommage à l’original.

Français: Hypérion

Bizets Carmen bedarf keiner Einführung, aber unter Dutzenden von Klavierfantasien über Themen aus der Oper hat der polnische Komponist und Pianist Moritz Moszkowski mit dieser 1906 erschienenen vortrefflichen Transkription eine besonders bemerkenswerte und brillante Hommage an das Original geschaffen.
