Bookmark and Share

In celebration of the 200th birthday of French composer Charles Gounod, Roberto Prosseda has released a collection of rarely heard piano works by the composer who is mostly remembered for his work on the opera stage. Gounod was an amateur pianist in matters of technique, but he excelled at accompanying himself singing his own melodies. He composed about 40 piano pieces in all, and this collection of a number of them allows us to appreciate their charm and expressive variety. The album includes several world-premiere recordings.
