Romain Descharmes is gathering very good reviews following the release of his first recording of all Saint-Saëns piano & orchestra pieces for Naxos:
"Descharmes treats the piece with almost epicurean relish, nowhere more so than in this sassy, witty account of the central scherzo. There’s no lack of virtuosity, but also time to savor the music’s many harmonic delights."
David Hurwitz, Classictoday, Avril 2017
"Place the work in the caring hands of the young multi-award winning, Romain Descharmes, and it is shaped with so much affection that avoids the frothy nothingness that has so often been passed-off in recorded performances as being the composer’s style.
My top disc of the month."
David Review Corner, March 2017
