All four composers featured on this CD lived largely in Paris during the second half of the 19th century and all of them had connections with the Paris Conservatoire, either as students and/or teachers. And on a personal level, ‘connections’ also abound.
The Debussy Sonata is short, with abrupt and daring changes in mood and colour. Chausson’s Piéce is an extremely beautiful and wistful late work, whilst Fauré’s Papillon is a lightning-fast piece where images seem to briefly appear and disappear. Cesar Franck’s Sonata in A major, originally written for violin and piano, is one of the most popular works in the chamber music repertoire.
Winona Zelenka received international acclaim in 2010 when her first solo recording – the CD set of Bach Suites for Solo Cello – was released on Marquis Classics (MARQUIS81509). Connie Shih regularly appears with cellist Steven Isserlis.
