Francis Poulenc owes his fame to his operatic works (Dialogues des Carmélites, Les Mamelles de Tirésias, La Voix humaine), his treasure-house of mélodies, his concertos and his sacred music, but his output for piano and small ensembles remains relatively little-known. Yet the catalogue of his chamber music comprises more than twenty works, including the Sonata for Violin and Piano composed in the dark years of the war, the only piece for these forces that he did not destroy.
