Séverac is a relatively unknown French composer. And yet this is due mostly to his living choice rather than to the quality and inspiration of his music. He was a man attached to his land, the south of France, who renounced the fame coming from living in the cultural powerful Paris. However as a composer he could match many famous ones like Ravel, for example. The EMI 3CD album is an exquisite exhibition of his piano music played masterly by Aldo Ciccolini. This album is a great recording for music lovers and for collectors of special musical jewels.
