About

Catchy melodies, captivating harmonies, and consistently brilliant displays of virtuosity laid the foundation for Cécile Chaminade’s unmatched popularity during her lifetime.

The celebrated pianist toured the Old and New Worlds, always with music of her own composition in her travelling bags, was invited to tea with Queen Victoria, and became the very first woman composer to be elected to the French Legion of Honour.

Today only a few of her numerous works are sometimes once again featured on performance programs – so that this latest recording by the award winning, internationally esteemed Trio Parnassus represents yet another contribution to a long-overdue rediscovery project.

During the more than thirty years of its existence the Trio Parnassus has discovered many a musical treasure in cooperation with MDG. Complete recordings of the trios of Widor, Lalo, and Godard attest to the ensemble’s profound understanding of the special colours of French music. With Johann Blanchard at the piano, a proven Cécile Chaminade expert enriches the fantastic playing of Julia Gali and Michael Groß – a wonderful discovery!
