Émile JAQUES-DALCROZE: Piano Music, Volume Three

The Swiss composer Émile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865–1950) is best remembered for his development of Eurhythmics, which teaches the appreciation of music through movement. The buoyant miniatures recorded here document his fascination with dance, including a flirtation with jazz and ragtime, although the apparent innocence of the music conceals a striking degree of metrical and rhythmic complexity, cast in a style not so far from Debussy and Fauré – and animated by the blithe spirit of Chabrier.
