    When he places Ravel’s Miroirs and Schoenberg’s Klavierstücke op.11 side by side, Frederic Chiu may seem to be trying to marry polar opposites. But such is far from being the case. The labels ‘impressionist’ and ‘expressionist’, generally used to define quite distinct musical spheres, in fact have a great deal in common – as is demonstrated by Abel Decaux’s extraordinary Clairs de lune and its unprecedented synthesis of Viennese atonality and Ravelian imagery.

    This title was released for the first time in 1995.
