Audio Sample


Available From: 01 March 2009
Dancla’s Petite École de la mélodie, Op 123 receives its world premiere recording, and it is coupled by the Wagnerian influenced D minor Sonata for violin and piano by Saint-Saëns' D minor Sonata for violin and piano, and completed by Massenet’s Meditation from his opera Thais performed in the arrangement for violin and piano.

French composer Dancla can be regarded as the last exponent of the classical French school of violin playing founded in the late 18th century by Viotti. One of Viotti’s favourite students was indeed Pierre Baillot, himself Charles Dancla’s most influential teacher. Petite Ecole de la melodie consists of twelve charming pieces for violin and piano and fully reflect the characteristics of the salon music popular at the end of the 19th century.

Twelve tasty trifles and a beautifully played sonata make a delightful disc
