Description: Since he destroyed almost all of his early works, we can call this 1902 sonata "early", a Franckian piece in the way that sonatas by Roussel, Ropartz and Magnard from the same general period are. The Greek folk-song settings of 1907 use the same collection Ravel used for his Cinq Mélodies while the half-hour long song cycle of 1908 is in a post-Romantic spirit tempered by a certain personal austerity. French-English texts. Frédéric Angleraux (violin), Hélène Hébrard (mezzo), François Killian (piano). * - World Premiere Recording.
