Just how much wonderful French music there is to discover from the period circa 1900 is revealed to us by Duo Avad on their new GENUIN album. Cellist Clemens Krieger and pianist Rieko Yoshizumi present original compositions and arrangements that reach far beyond the standard repertoire. The release features tiny treasures of little-known composers such as Gabriel Pierné and Louis Vierne as well as unknown works by the "greats" such as Debussy, Ravel and Fauré. Of particular note is the "Soir triste" by Lili Boulanger, who died much too early. Reconstructed by the ensemble, it is recorded here for the first time. This is intimate, impressionistic chamber music, elegantly and finely performed at the highest level.
