French-born Canadian pianist and composer Alain Lefvre makes his Warner Classics debut with 'My Paris Years'. The album brings together a collection of classic piano pieces written by some of the most beloved French composers: Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Erik Satie, and Csar Franck. 'My Paris Years' is, in essence, a hymn to the city where Lefvre spent some of his most precious years of learning. From the rolling waters of the Seine to it's calm banks above, from the subdued mood of the streets to their sometimes intense flurries of movement - every piece plays it's part in depicting the scene that is Paris and recreating the multifaceted spirit of this city in music.
