Les délices d’Alicia

J’ai un seul souvenir de concert avec elle : une toute petite dame, élégante, qui fascinait l’auditoire dès qu’elle se mettait à jouer. La pianiste espagnole Alicia de Larrocha (1923-2009) a fait l’objet de plusieurs rééditions chez ses éditeurs successifs – ou parfois simultanés.

Mais voici que Decca édite un fort coffret de 41 CD, l’intégrale des enregistrements de la pianiste espagnole pour le label britannique.  Je ne peux que redire ce que j’écrivais en mars 2016 : lire Les merveilles d’Alicia.
