Hello,

I was just wondering how come these wonderful pieces (and composer) are not really known and were recorded only once or twice? They sound very impressionistic. Have you ever heard of them or played them?

Best regards, Dr

I took a look at this unknown-to-me composer's score as recommended by the poster and must agree. I see very idiomatc and artistic writing and predict some future postings by members as a result.

Same goes for me. Looks interesting, indeed. Will have to print off some music tomorrow (no ink in my printer now...).
Thank you, Dr. K. :)

Not at all. :)

Frankly, I have a habit of checking today's anniversaries of events and birthdays on Wikipedia. I did this also yesterday and found Magnard's page. :)

Here is the first of Promenades and the only one featured on YouTube - Envoi:

You may also listen to samples of all pieces on Amazon.

Best regards, Dr

Thanks for the link. It's an interesting piece - not overly difficult and not very long. My kind of music! :)
Now if I could just find more time in the day; I've so much great music sitting on my piano right now...
