At the beginning of the twentieth century, all roads led to Paris. The Exposition Universelle drew great crowds, Hemingway and Kandinsky settled there, Proust wrote À la Recherche… and Cocteau La Machine infernale, Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes revolutionized dance, and Debussy, Satie, and Stravinsky caused scandal. Recording together as a duo for the first time, violinist Manon Galy and pianist Jorge González Buajasán capture the flavor of that time of renewal. With this eloquent interpretation of sonatas and other pieces by Debussy, Ravel, Poulenc, and Milhaud, they offer a glimpse of the audacity and modernity that characterized French music during those years.
