Mathieu and Arakawa balance the solemn and the celebratory in this sensitive, dynamic performance. Exploring the works of four French composers Claude Debussy, Lili Boulanger, Nicolas Bacri, Francis Poulenc the album is emotional, refined, and triumphant all at the same time. The album begins with a trip back to with Claude Debussys Sonata for violin and piano in G minor. Written when the composer was suffering from terminal cancer, a year before his death, he wrote to a friend that this sonata will be interesting from a documentary point of view and as an example of what may be produced by a sick man in time of war. Mathieu and Arakawa handle this introspective work with technical precision and grace. The moving album finds its title track in composer Lili Boulangers 3 Pieces for violin and piano.
