The Flatterer: Piano Music of Cécile Chaminade
This CD debuted at #1 on Classical Billboard! Chaminade was a prolific French composer who published over 400 pieces in her lifetime. She was a brilliant pianist and toured throughout the world, and in the United States, musical societies founded by women, inspired by Chaminade, began sprouting all over the midwest and were titled “Chaminade Clubs.” Some still exist today. Her music is tonal and lilting and lovely and charming, and her concert etudes are challenging and virtuosic and inspiring.
