About

Following his award-winning survey of Ravelís complete solo piano works, Bertrand Chamayou takes on some of the most brilliant yet fiendishly virtuosic music in the French Romantic repertoire on his new Saint-SaŽns album, drawing together the two most famous of the composer-pianistís five piano concertos Ė the epic No.2 and the irresistibly exotic No.5 ĎThe Egyptianí.

ĎIím always charmed by Saint-SaŽns,í says Chamayou. ĎThereís an attraction to the exotic, the bizarre, sensual fantasy, thatís very curious for a composer that we think of as so academic. And thereís a real sense of voyage in the music of Saint-SaŽns that I find fascinating.í He is joined by the Orchestre National de France and its formidable conductor Emmanuel Krivine for an album that promises fireworks, champagne and just a few puffs of opium.
