Now unjustly forgotten, Gabriel Dupont left us two large-scale cycles of piano pieces and a sumptuous Quintet for strings and piano. This composer who died aged 36 in 1914 was the last representative of French Romanticism. His inspired, lyrical music sings of nature, the sea, the wind and the rain. Marie Catherine Girod is one of the leading specialists of a figure who is overdue for rediscovery.

For more than twenty years now, Marie Catherine Girod has been a passionate defender of neglected and forgotten repertoire for the piano. It is to her that we owe the world premiere recording of La Maison dans les dunes in 1997. This new disc, recorded in Prague, the city of the celebrated Pražák Quartet, on a Petrov piano whose velvety sonorities are ideally suited to the composer’s melancholy, ‘Proustian’ universe, demonstrates once again that Gabriel Dupont is a composer who is overdue for rediscovery.

This album presents the first world recording of “Journée de Printemps”, poem for violin and piano.
