Pourquoi ce titre surprenant « L'oreille de Proust » ? Parce que Proust était fou de musique et que ses goûts, à une époque où les salons parisiens accueillaient de la musique de chambre, des joutes pianistiques, d'innombrables mélodies, des transcriptions d'ouvres orchestrales, d'opéras, épousaient tout cet univers extrêmement varié .

Debussy began composing La Mer in 1904, in Burgundy, but as he wrote to fellow composer André Messager, his memories of the sea were “worth more than a reality whose charm generally weighs tooheavily on the imagination”. He continued to work on the score, however, while staying in Jersey, and then in Dieppe.

The ten Sonatas for piano and violin constitute a monument of chamber music. The first nine, written over a short period, between 1798 and 1803 (the tenth would come later, in 1812), clearly illustrate the composer's journey towards artistic maturity, from the influence of Mozart and Haydn in the first three sonatas towards a more complex, very modern language of which the 'Kreutzer' Sonata is a perfect example.

I heard Trio Nuori in concert for the first time in 2011. Amongst other pieces, it was the performance anthology of the wonderful Trio Opus 83 by George Onslow which made a lasting impression on everybody that evening. They came back several times to the Concerts de Vollore Music Festival, performing Alexis de Castillon, whose Trios they recorded on the Ligia label, followed by Alkan’s Trio. So, when I discovered the marvellous piano compositions of Henriette Renié, it seemed obvious to me to suggest to them that they record these pieces which have so regrettably remained in the shadows.

Beethoven’s op.12 set of three violin sonatas had been praised for their technical prowess, but criticised for the abrupt changes in mood, one critic saying (1799) he felt as if he was starting out on a pleasant stroll in the country with a friend, only to end up entangled in bushes and brambles, to return home in a bad mood. Beethoven who was notoriously touchy when it came to such reviews, responded with two sonatas that could not be more extreme in character.
