Description: A sampling of the charming, off-the-cuff pieces that so delighted audiences up until relatively recently but have faded away with the last performers of the romantic tradition. This album serves to illuminate the brilliant music that many of these underrated yet highly talented 19th century composers gave us. Vaughan Jones (violin), Marcus Price (piano).
