Saint-Saëns: Duettino

The next recording of the “Pleyel Double Grand Series” is the “Duettino”. This CD contains numerous premier recordings and guides the listener into the musical world of Saint-Saëns. With their programme, the duo intended to resolutely confront the one-sided image of Saint-Saëns that still prevails today and that degrades him to a composer of light, superficial, virtuoso works. In addition to the Beethoven Variations, which are considered classics, the CD Duettino presents works inspired by Greek mythology and a Heine ballad.
