About the album

“Dumont’s Chopin takes its time and is voracious in its use of sound spaces, finding in the profundity of the keyboard resonant spaces that are emphasised by the remarkable art of pedalling. Poulenc recalled that he hated dry pianists, "those who are on a diet", asking them to add some sauce. For him, clean playing was not antithetical to the use of the pedal. It is this squaring of the circle that the French pianist achieves in the slippery slopes of the Third Scherzo, so often played in a «cluttered» manner. But it is in the two hidden perpetual motion pieces - the Berceuse and the Barcarolle - that this art attains its quintessence.

"With its fluid low notes and its discreet high notes, the profound piano delivers all of its very simple poetry.” (J.C. Hoffelé)
