(Philippe Cassard - nice observations of Brahms and Schumann)

To Paris this week for a recital by French Pianist Philippe Cassard, recorded live at the Theatre de l'Athenee this past March 30. Mostly Schumann and Brahms with two works by Anton Webern and Arnold Schoenberg. The concert is complete and broken up into two parts with Part one above and Part two below. Here's what's on the program:

Théâtre de l'Athénée : Récital Philippe Cassard, piano

Concert donné le 30 mars 2010 au Théâtre de l'Athénée à Paris

Part 1: Johannes Brahms

Intermezzi Op.117

Robert Schumann

Fantaisie en Ut majeur Op.17

Variations Op.27

Arnold Schoenberg

3 Pièces Op.11

I think I can confidently say this concert won't jack up your blood pressure. Since it's recorded live by Radio France Musique, the announcements are all in French. But I've edited them down so you don't have to go crazy with a French-English dictionary.
