It takes a certain something to capture the delicacy of French music. And in this concert, we hear one of the masters at work: Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

With his light touch and deep sensitivity, Bavouzet brings to life some of the most evocative and poetic music ever written for piano.

From the fireworks and moonlight of Debussy’s gorgeous Suite bergamasque (including the famous Clair de lune) and Preludes, to the dream-like nocturnes of late-Romantic and Impressionist composers including Fauré, Pierné and Decaux, Bavouzet captures the many shades and colours of this music with a technique “so polished that precious few of his colleagues could claim superiority” (Gramophone).
