Saint-Saëns’s first published works for piano were the vivid and characterful Six Bagatelles, Op 3. Album, Op 72 dates from his mid-career and teems with rich colours and textures—haunting and exciting alike. Elsewhere, in this third volume of the Complete Piano Music, we find the richly evocative tone poem Rhapsodie d’Auvergne, paraphrases, and some delicious encores

"...As one might imagine, Saint-Saëns the composer always gave Saint-Saëns the pianist plenty to do in performance, although the virtuosity never approaches vulgarity. Burleson rides the musical waves like a bronzed champion surfer."

"...Certainly there is much of interest in Vol 3 of his cycle. In the second Bagatelle you hear the influence of Schumann’s Florestan…in writing as colourful as it is pianistically adroit. The Op 72 Album offers music of a fuller, more advanced idiom, with the shadow of Liszt in his later dark-hued manner hanging over ‘Carillon’ and with an elegant ‘Valse’ to follow ... The Rhapsodie d’Auvergne ... fizzes with energy after its folksong start and the ambitious 1867 Caprice has a notably witty finale. Yet arguably the most personal voice is found in Les cloches du soir and in the concluding Feuillet d’album ... all this music is played with verve and commitment by Burleson ..."
