Info zu Le Ruban Dénoué - Valses

Eric Le Sage and Frank Braley, who have cultivated a long musical friendship, combine their talents on this exceptional album "Le Ruban Dénoué - Valses" to perform on two pianos the work of Reynaldo Hahn, "Le Ruban Dénoué" (The Untied Ribbon), initially written for piano and voice and finally transcribed for piano, as well as Three Romantic Waltzes by Chabrier, the precursor of music for two pianos and mentor of Reynaldo Hahn.

"Frank and I, who have a long musical friendship, had long wanted to pay homage to this composer, to his writing, which says a lot with few notes and whose magic is very original. After our recordings of Poulenc, Debussy, Ravel, it will be another light of French music for two pianos that will end in a more solar way with Chabrier's waltzes completing the album". (Eric Le Sage)

Le Ruban Dénoué is one of the most important pieces by Reynaldo Hahn. This set of twelve waltzes for 2 pianos was conceived as entertainment for Hahn’s friends and has a strong melodic aspect. It is one of the greatest pieces of work composed by Hahn in terms of harmony and, written at the end of his Piano writing period; it is a good transition toward his second period that is more focused on comedies and operas.
