The famous Russian pianist-composer, who became an American citizen in 1958, was as well known in 1930s Paris as Stravinsky and heir to a number of Slav cultures in Europe and Asia. In the course of long visits, he also analysed the music of the Far East (China, Japan, Korea…), endeavouring to find a common language in the various folklores he discovered.

One of the problems of getting a complete set of songs by a single composer, particularly nowadays, is that there always seems to be at least one singer in the mix who has a defective voice. I should get this out of the way quickly and point out that the fly in the ointment here is Canadian baritone Marc Boucher, who has an uneven, loose vibrato and occasional strain and nasality in his high notes. He is an interesting interpreter, so he has that in his favor, whereas the wonderful soprano Hélène Guilmette doesn’t appear to interpret much at all, but for my taste he gets way too many of these songs to sing. In some of the faster songs, i.e. Les Matelots, his voice doesn’t wobble too much because he doesn’t have that many sustained notes to sing.

Combining works by Debussy and Poulenc on an album may, to some, seem a bit ironic seeing as at one point, the latter railed against the music of the former. Poulenc was later to change his tune, though, and eventually became one of Debussy's most ardent admirers. The two were greatly responsible for a new direction in French music, which, ironically, required both of them to look to composers of the past for inspiration.

La violoncelliste italienne Silvia Chiesa et le non moins italien pianiste Maurizio Bagini ont formé, en 2005, un duo violoncelle-piano désormais installé dans la planète musicale internationale ; on leur doit déjà une intégrale Saint-Saëns, un album avec les sonates de Brahms et l’ « Arpeggione » de Schubert. Voici l’intégrale – hélas bien courte – des œuvres que Rachmaninov a consacré à la formation, mais il s’y trouve quand même une somptueuse sonate de 1901un des grands sommets du duo violoncelle-piano. Les deux instruments y sont traités en égaux parfaits.

The two sonatas for cello and piano by Camille Saint-Saëns stand as bookends to what was an impressively long compositional career spanning more than seven decades. Much of Saint-Saëns' music for cello, including these two sonatas, has been dismissed as inferior and is rarely performed or recorded. Only the first cello concerto, often played by advanced students of the instrument, remains a common occurrence on disc or stage.

The Viennese cellist Joseph Merk has become one of many musicians who were originally associated with a lot of historically important facts and figures before falling into oblivion. Merk s musical career began at a very early age as a successful violin player. After being bitten by a dog in his left arm, he could no longer hold the violin up to his chin and thus changed to the cello, which at the time had just started to become a soloists instrument.

Though Puccini represents the late-Romantic apex of the Italian operatic tradition, his songs are much less well known and, in their pared simplicity and emotional restraint, could hardly be more different from his stage works. The nineteen complete songs for soprano (two in duet with a mezzo) and piano cover themes typical of lyric poetry including life, death, personal resolution, love, nature, home and religious faith. There are also rare salon pieces and examples of Puccini’s secular and sacred juvenilia, written between 1875 and 1880.
