Notes & Reviews:

"Pierrots Lunaires" endeavors to seek out and make known a 20th and 21st century repertory that is often unknown to the public. Considered by romantic composers as too austere to be worthy of attention, the duo of violin and cello became, after WWI, a favorite means of expression for composers seeking new sounds to express a new aesthetic. Violinist Mélanie Clapiès and cellist Yan Levionnois met in 2009 during a series of string ensemble concerts and soon decided to form a violin and cello duo.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This program is made up entirely of music for violin and cello duo written in the last century. The largest works are the earliest, Ravel's from 1922 and Erwin Schulhoff's from 1925. The Villa-Lobos pieces were composed in 1929. All of these are beautiful and exciting music that has been recorded many times before. These performances stand up well to the competition.
