About

With the album 1914, the French Cultural Institute is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War in co-operation with Gramola.

Many works of the war years testify to the suffering and the power of destruction, such as the Quintet for Piano and String Quartet in C minor op.42 (1917/18) by Louis Vierne, which he wrote in memory of his murdered son. In addition, the album also contains compositions apparently unaffected by the horrors of the time, like the Preludes for Piano op.38 (1914/15) by Vierne or the Sonata for Violin and Piano op 64 (1915/16) by Charles Koechlin, which is kept entirely in the Impressionist manner.
