This new release LES NOCES DE CHOUNETTE from Phasma-Music presents a selection of works for solo piano by French contemporary composer Louis Sauter (b. 1955), recorded by world-class Greek pianist Vicky Stylianou. The highlight of the album is Les Noces de Chounette, a set of 12 pieces in styles ranging from a prelude & fugue to a foxtrot and a samba, all celebrating the composer's wedding to his wife Hélène. Also featured are Sauter’s Apophtegmes – a candy box of short miniatures, Vagabondages – a set of pieces depicting locations where the composer lived, the intriguing Umbriel, and the astrophysics-inspired Suite Cosmique. The album concludes with Sauter’s brilliant variations on the Provençal tune Digo Janeto.
