GP label announces release of 4-CD set of Florent Schmitt’s complete original works for piano duet & duo by Invencia Piano Duo

SCHMITT, F.: Piano Duet and Duo Works (Complete) (Invencia Piano Duo) (4-CD Box Set)

Florent Schmitt stands alongside Debussy and Ravel as one of the most original and influential French composers of his time. Winner of the Prix de Rome in 1900, Schmitt wrote successfully in many forms but he was a formidable pianist who described his often rich and multi-staved scores as “fistfuls of piano”. His music for the instrument is colourful, filled with adventurous harmonic innovation, stylistic bravura and good humoured wit. This complete collection for piano duo and duet includes unpublished works and rarities.
