The French pianist Ismaël Margain, newly signed up with naïve, creates a sensitive and meaningful juxtaposition of two major composers of piano repertoire, Frédéric Chopin and Gabriel Fauré. In spite of it's title, this first album by the French pianist recorded under the naïve label is anything but improvised: Ismaël Margain cleverly structures the meeting between two piano geniuses, Frédéric Chopin and Gabriel Fauré, highlighting an "obvious kinship between their styles and in their inspiration," without confusing or misrepresenting their uniqueness. The impromptu form, common to both composers - four for the first, six for the second -, is the starting point for this logical comparison, organising diversity of atmosphere around similar tonalities.
