Mathieu-Con. No. 3 | Gershwin-An American In ParisAnalekta
Analekta is proud to announce the release of André Mathieu: Concerto No. 3, the 21st album by the great pianist and composer Alain Lefèvre to be released by the label. Alain Lefèvre unveils the results of three years of hard work by Jacques Marchand, George Nicholson and himself aimed at restoring, in its original form, André Mathieu's famous Concerto No. 3.
Presented as a world premiere in February 2017 in Buffalo, where it was performed by Alain Lefèvre (who has been responsible for Mathieu's rehabilitation in cultural memory both here and elsewhere) and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of the renowned JoAnn Falletta, the reconstituted Concerto No. 3 was enthusiastically received by the audience. Recorded at those performances, the album André Mathieu: Concerto No. 3 accurately conveys the brilliance of Alain Lefèvre and the enthusiasm of the musicians, aware as they were of sharing a highly emotional and one-of-a-kind moment. JoAnn Falletta had previously collaborated with Alain Lefèvre in presenting works by Mathieu – in New York's Carnegie Hall in 2013, among other settings.
