SCHMITT, F.: Piano Duet and Duo Works (Complete), Vol. 4 (Invencia Piano Duo)

Florent Schmitt was one of the most important of all French composers, an individualist who defies the simplicities of classification. The last of this four-disc series explores Schmitt’s Humoresques, Op 43, a cycle full of unexpected and witty twists, as well as the visionary Lied et scherzo, Op 54. His gift for characterisation is always evident, not least in Trois pièces récréatives, Op 37 which is strongly spiced with humour.
