Description

Camille Thomas and Julien Liebeer, ardent champions of chamber music, have devised an exceptionally varied yet coherent recital of French music for cello and piano. ‘Reminiscences’ invites its listeners to plunge into the sound-world of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, in works full of inimitable colours. Two large-scale compositions, César Franck’s illustrious Sonata and the rarely heard but splendid Sonata for unaccompanied cello op.28 of Eugène Ysaÿe, structure a programme that also includes celebrated short pieces by Duparc, Fauré and Saint-Saëns, all of them bywords for lyricism and imagination.
