Description: Pauline’s Morceaux were composed in 1868 as a gift to her young son. Beyond his sonatas (07T005), much of Paul Viardot’s music consists of the short ‘salon’ works on this recording, the later ones of which evoke 1920s Paris and French elegance. Longest Naxos CD yet - 84:37. Reto Kuppel (violin), Wolfgang Manz (piano).
