Notes & Reviews:

Discovering high-quality music is exhilarating. And for the performer, perhaps even more so, for to the customary exercise of re-creation is added the further responsibility of defending before the audience unknown works for which listeners have no prejudice. Such is the case with the present program, devoted to French women composers of the 19th and 20th c., including Ccile Chaminade, Lili Boulanger and Germaine Tailleferre, heretofore little served in discographies. Violinist Sara Chenal has pursued a career as a solo violinist following several year service in the Dijon Opera Orchestra.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
This is music by French female composers. The oldest is Pauline Viardot (1821-1910), and the youngest is Chrystel Marchand (b 1958). The music is uniformly light, frothy, and feminine. It is also quite uniform in quality. This is ideal if you would like a program like this. Sara Chenal is a fine violinist, and Jean-Pierre Ferey is a fine partner.
