Much more about Alkan;

Charles-Valentin Alkan. 30 November 1813 – 29 March 1888) was a French Jewish composer and virtuoso pianist. At the height of his fame in the 1830s and 1840s he was, alongside his friends and colleagues Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt, among the leading pianists in Paris, a city in which he spent virtually his entire life.

Alkan was born Charles-Valentin Morhange at 1 Rue de Braque in Paris to Alkan Morhange (1780–1855) and Julie Morhange, née Abraham. Alkan Morhange was descended from a long-established Jewish Ashkenazic community in the region of Metz; the village of Morhange is located about 30 miles (48 km) from the city of Metz. There is much written about Alkan that can easily be searched but his music was overlooked and missunderstood for many years but now being rediscovered. His organ music was first championed by Kevin Bowyer on two discs played on the organ of Blackburn Cathedral.
