Recorded on instruments dating appropriately from the early years of the 20th-century, this generous programme is called Paris joyeux & triste. Stravinsky’s concerto for two pianos and his own transcription of Dumbarton Oaks rub shoulders with Cage’s arrangement of Satie’s Socrate and Milhaud’s wild version of Cinema (complete with idiosyncratic prepared-piano effects). Every piece delights both mind and ear, while fine recorded sound completes an unmissable package.
