Presentation

Born 29 May 1891, five months to the day after the pianist Yves Nat (1890-1956), who was with him in Louis Diémer’s class at the Paris Conservatoire, Marcel Ciampi belonged to that generation of ‘historic performers’, rooted in the 19th century but served by the evolution of technology, which would have the privilege of bequeathing numerous excellent traces of his playing.
Preserved on tapes, then ignored for more than six decades, the musical testimonies brought together on the present CD are remarkable in that the French Radio recorded them live before an audience in the mid-Fifties, in the course of two concerts given at the ‘Maison Gaveau’.
