    I love this sparkling, effervescent set, which I'm playing today as a trubute to the late Mady Mesplé.

    I have a special affection for La vie parisienne as my father loved Offenbach and this was the last Offenbach operetta he conducted before he died. I was one of the dancers and I well remember him conducting with such evident love of the music.

    Again Pascal Dusapin (*1955), continued from yesterday

    a selection of his string quartets:
    - Quatuor V (2004/05)
    - Quatuor II “Time Zones” (1989)
    Arditti Quartet (aeon)



    and a selection of his Études pour piano:
    - Étude no. 1 (1999)
    - Étude no. 5 (2000)
    - Étude no. 7 (2001)
    Vanessa Wagner, piano (musicales actes sud)



    and a work for cello solo
    - Immer (1996)
    Sonia Wieder-Atherton, cello (rca red seal)



    Hm – I didn’t really like the string quartet no. 2 and I didn’t finish it. Whereas I thought the string quartet no. 5 to be wonderful, likewise the piano works and the work for solo cello. Anyway, I definitely will explore more Dusapin.

    Franz Schubert: Piano Trio No.2 in E-flat major, D929. Beaux Arts Trio. (Originally on Philips, I have the pictured Decca reissue.)

    This is a towering, sprawling piece. It seems to go on forever in all directions. Probably my favorite of Schubert's chamber works. The Beaux Arts give a convincing performance, as always, but I'm not sure if it surpasses the first recording I've ever heard, by the Florestan Trio, which I don't have on CD only because it's quite expensive. Still, it's very good and I'd highly recommend this 2CD set to anybody.
