Genre: Chamber music

Cello and piano

Musical beauty can take many forms. Here it is found in a video of intimate chamber music, as Mikael Sjögren on cello and Stefan Lindgren perform music from France.

For many people, Jules Massenet is known for the opera Manon, but he also composed piano pieces and songs, and this enchanting Élégie for cello and piano was originally intended for voice.

Germaine Tailleferre was a member of Les Six, a group of six composers who were active in France in the 1920s, and we will hear her romantic Impromptu and playful Pastorale for piano.

Gabriel Fauré’s Sicilienne was originally an orchestral piece for a theatrical production that never came to be, so Fauré arranged the music for cello and piano instead. His Après un rêve is also tranquil and beloved.

Frédéric Chopin was not French, but Polish. However, he left his homeland in his twenties and lived in Paris. Stefan Lindgren plays his Prelude in C-sharp minor.

At the urging of his publisher, Debussy began what would be one of his greatest composition projects: six sonatas for different instruments. We hear the Sonata for cello and piano, inspired by eighteenth-century French composers François Couperin and Jean-Philippe Rameau.
