Florent Schmitt piano recording given three prestigious Critics Awards in France

March 25, 2011

SCHMITT La Tragédie de Salomé, Ombres, Mirages (Naxos 8.572194)

Naxos is pleased to announce that award winning pianist Vincent Larderet has been recognised for his recording of Florent Schmitt’s piano works with Classica Magazine’s selective Choc de Classica award for April, and the prestigious Maestro from Pianiste Magazine and 5 de Diapason from Diapason Magazine both for May 2011. Described as “a showcase of technical brilliance [in] stunning sound” (David’s Review Corner) this début Naxos release from Larderet has already received plaudits for reviving neglected works whose qualities are comparable with Debussy and Ravel. Considered one of today’s leading French pianists and “Classical Revelation” winner at MIDEM 2003, Vincent Larderet is a champion of unusual repertoire. Alongside masterpieces Ombres and Mirages this release sees the world première recording of Schmitt’s own piano version of La Tragédie de Salomé.
