Medtner, Dupré, Grieg


“For his third album on Artalinna, the Japanese Hiroaki Takenouchi invites us to rediscover three little-known variation cycles, including Grieg’s sumptuous Ballade, inspired by a popular Norwegian song. With his major Second Improvisation, Medtner creates an immense pantheistic journey, which lasts half an hour. A very rare work, dedicated to the famous French organist Marcel Dupré, whose astonishing Variations in C minor, Op. 22, are presented in response. A truly original tour of Europe!” © Artalinna
