French pianist Monique Haas recorded the piano works of Debussy and Ravel twice, once in the late '50s and early '60s for Deutsche Grammophon and again in the late '60s and early '70s for Erato. The later recordings are released here in this six disc set from Warner Classics. As on the earlier set, Haas' performances are elegantly stylish, technically impeccable, consummately musical, and quintessentially French. Pick any piece by either composer at random, and you'll see. Try her bright but sensual Suite Bergamasque with its ravishing Clair de lune or her brilliant and visionary Études with their astounding concluding Pour les accords. Or try her recklessly virtuosic Gaspard de la nuit with its frightening Scarbo or her sweetly swaying Valses nobles et sentimentales with its heartrending Épilogue. There are only two meaningful differences between Haas' recordings: in the earlier performance, she is more passionate and impetuous while in the later performances she is more measured and thoughtful.

Although many of his commercial recordings date from the same period, we are nonetheless presented with performances both supplementary and complementary to those already available, sinificantly filling our our aural image of Horenstein's accomplishments. May it prove to be but the first of many such surveys of his art to appear. Written by Joel Lazar, Horenstein's personal assistant during the last two years of the legendary Maestro's life, the only young conductor ever to serve in this capacity
Il n'est pas très difficile de parler de parents, et donc de parenté, quand on est juriste : la notion relève incontestablement du droit. Il en va différemment de la parentalité. En effet, ce terme, bien que couramment employé par les sociologues, n'existe pas. Il s'agit d'un néologisme qui n'a reçu à ce jour aucune définition, ni dans un dictionnaire de langage usuel, ni comme terme juridique. …
