Amongst the operas, the orchestral works and the songs, for which he is very well known, Massenet also wrote a piano concerto and various piano pieces. These include a cycle of Improvisations, 10 Pièces de genre (op.10), 2 Valses, 2 Impressions, and some other separate pieces. This CD also includes the recording of two transcriptions derived from Massenet's famous melodies: the ‘Meditation’ from Thais, and the ‘Aragonaise’ from Le Cid.

The character of Massenet's music here is mostly cantabile with some virtuoso and quicker works which give a great variety to the series.

Maurizio Zaccaria is a young talent from Bari who possesses great technical ease and interpretive ability. The recordings have been captured in the wonderful theatre of Atri, Teramo, using 6 microphones (Neumann and Sennheiser) and top-class Prism Sound equipment.
