Third "Finale" movement from the Piano Concerto in C minor Op. 12 (1886)

Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937) is quite unknown even to French audiences and tends to be overshadowed by his illustrious contemporary, Saint-Saëns. Pierné is usually remembered as a great organist; he even succeeded Franck as organist of the St. Clotilde Basilica in 1890. Of his prolific output including operas, ballet, chamber works, songs, and solo piano music, virtually nothing has remained in the repertoire. One might wonder why his gorgeous, dramatic, and exciting piano concerto is not performed more often. It is a powerful and convincing virtuoso piece, reminiscent of MacDowell and Saint-Saëns, that presages Rachmaninov. Surely any fan of the Russian master's piano concerti can appreciate this lesser-known jewel.
