Chamber Music during La belle époque

During La belle époque, the period in French history that lasted from roughly 1880 to the First World War, chamber music flourished, especially chamber music featuring the piano. In this episode, we’ll explore the innovations that were taking place in how chamber music was being envisioned in France and how composers were striving to create something distinctively French in their chamber music. We’ll revel in performances of movements from Debussy’s luscious String Quartet and Ravel’s mesmerizing Piano Trio performed by the Parker String Quartet and the Gryphon Trio.
