The renaissance of the works of Charles Koechlin (1867-1950) has been in full swing for some years now. His tonal language unites impressionist and expressionist features in an original way and draws on old church keys as well as modern means, such as polytonality or atonality. This is one of the reasons why Koechlin became an important pioneer of modernism after 1945 – without, however, offending his listeners. Well-known as an orchestral magician, he also demonstrates his infallible sense of sound in the chamber music recorded here.
