Piano music is as essential to France as the opera is to Italy or lieder to Germany. This anthology, a broad cross-section of French piano music, selects and presents 44 short piano works ranging from 1670 to 1906. Twenty-eight composers, all French or active in France, are featured.Some of the pieces are extremely popular and favorites with pianists at all levels. Others, although equally important, are more obscure. Included is a wide range of compositions: courantes, passepieds, sarabandes, gigues, gavottes, preludes, minuets, waltzes, romances, scherzos, caprices. Works of special interest include Rameau's "The Hen," Gossec's "Gavotte," Saint-Saëns' "Song Without Words," Lully's "Courante in E Minor," and Couperin's "Les Papillons.
