Le piano de Reynaldo Hahn
Documentary film by Jean-Christophe Etienne

For his entire life, Reynaldo Hahn was labeled as a composer of salon music, a lightweight, whose compositions were written to satisfy the academic tastes of social circles in the Belle Époque and during the period between the two wars. Luckily however, in recent years, a handful of performers and publishers have allowed us to discover the incredible diversity of his eclectic and enchanting work. While not widely known, his piano music is in fact one of the most original aspects of his talent. The outstanding recordings presented in this boxed set of four CDs should help in banishing those long held prejudices. The documentary that accompanies this boxed set should allow the curious music lover to explore Reynaldo Hahn’s piano universe in great depth.
