The present disc echoes his many interpretations of Franz Liszt,
in China, Brazil, or in the Nezahualcoyotl room in Mexico City.
This celebration of the Hungarian composer is also an opportunity for Pascal Gallet to pay tribute to his master Éliane Richepin, and his friends Claude and Dominique Mangeot of the Fontmorigny Abbey.
Pascal GALLET one of the most talented French pianist and known worldwide of his
generation. He joined the National Superior Conservatory of Music in Paris at a very young age and performed for the first time on television at the age of 10. He is disciple of Eliane Richepin, Pierre Sancan, Yvonne Loriod and Teresa Llacuna, and spent his early years working with Olivier Messiaen, who dedicated two works to him from his catalogue of Birds. Winner of several international competitions, accompanied as soloist by prestigious philharmonic orchestras, he has given recitals and masterclasses around the world for thirty years.
His Maguelone’s discography celebrates both great composers (Chopin, Debussy, Grieg...) and geniuses unjustly unknown to the general public such as Turina, Collet, or André Jolivet of which he remains the only pianist in the world to have recorded the Integral for solo piano.
