Lovely works by little known Lekeu
James A. Leopard | Brooklyn, New York | 09/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Belgian-born Lekeu, a student of both Franck and D'Indy, composed these pieces between 1887 and 1892. The first, written the year of his 17th birthday, is a somber but most affecting work. The other instrumental pieces, while occasionally more spirited, also have an undercurrent of yearning if not pathos. The Larghetto, my personal favorite, is exceptionally beautiful and all are played with feeling and care. The three Poemes, giving musical voice to a work each of Lamartine, Verlaine, and Hugo, are lovingly performed by Rachel Yakar. Sadly, Lekeu died the day following his 24th birthday."
