For most of the twentieth century, the music of Cécile Chaminade was overlooked or dismissed by those who persisted in maintaining an elitism in music. It was easier to play than say, Liszt. It not only was widely published, but it sold well in both Europe and America. Amateurs performed it regularly. It was written by a woman. However, hearing some of her piano music played by Peter Jacobs, the impression is that it isn't very different from the shorter works of Schumann, Mendelssohn, Grieg, or many other more famous composers.

The swings of fortune are going the way of Cecile Chaminade at the moment. For so long seemingly remembered as no more than a salon composer, she has more recently had her flute Concertino recorded by James Galway on RCA, and now enjoys the second CD compilation of piano pieces within a matter of months. Chaminade's most popular composition, Automne, has a main theme that will be familiar to most people, and those who know and love the piece will surely be as readily enraptured by its Op.

In other words, there's a certain amount of whimsy in his programming, which, in a way, reflects the music here. There is a great variety in the character of the pieces, and no matter what the mood of it, it always seems to be filled with a luminescent quality, particularly in the way Jacobs performs it.

It is symptomatic of the present day that, when many people find contemporary music brow-furrowing, if not repellent, there should be a ready market for music from an earlier age that makes no bid for profundity but is undemandingly agreeable.
