Description: The majority of Boisdeffre’s music are chamber works for the salon but these were not the salons of the first half of the 19th century. These were places where middle-class society and professional musicians gathered to hear and perform works which had no wide public accommodations for performance. So we have here intimacy and delicacy of touch and color with instruments sharing thematic material with the c.1893 30-minute sonata appropriately ratcheting up its manner of discourse as befits its form. Luca Fiorentini (cello), Jakub Tchorzewski (piano).
