This album contains the major cyclical works by Alkan: the complete Études dans tous les tons mineurs Op. 39, the Sonata “Les quatre âges” and the Sonatina. These towering works of unprecedented proportions, difficulty and originality form a landmark of 19th century pianism, only comparable with Liszt’s compositions in these genres. Alkan’s deep musicality and humanity lift these works from mere curiosities (or monstrosities..) to genuine and universal works of art.

Composer: Charles-Valentin Alkan
Artist: Vincenzo Maltempo (piano)
