Monique de la Bruchollerie Edition

34.99 €

This Monique de La Bruchollerie (1915-2015) Centenary Edition Box of 9 CDs /1 DVD is a fascinating journey through the career of Bruchollerie. These recordings were made between 1943 and 1966 and were selected by her daughter Diane. Most of them are unreleased live and studio recordings representing Bruchollerie as one of the greatest French pianists of the 20th century. She had a vast repertoire that extended from the Baroque to contemporary composers like Dutilleux and she only left a small recorded legacy. This edition is accompanied by a 28-pages booklet in English and French.
