ROPARTZ, RHENÉ-BATON: Trios avec piano

This is the third recording in a critically-acclaimed series entitled Découvertes 1890-1939, which explores works by little-known French composers. The featured artists are pianist Stéphane Lemelin and his colleagues, violinist Anne Robert and cellist Paul Marleyn, who together form the Trio Hochelaga. They perform trios with piano by two leading lights of the French musical establishment at the beginning of the 20th century : Joseph Guy Ropartz, a lawyer who eventually gave in to his passion for music to become a full-time musician and composer; and René Emmanuel Bâton, an orchestral conductor whose appearances included an engagement with Serge Diaghilev’s Ballet russes in 1912. Many of his works are clearly inspired by his love for Brittany and Breton culture.
