Meynaud - Chamber Music
Some of these pieces have a very baroque feel, which I like very much. This is surprising as Meynaud was born in 1950, and is as modern as composers come. Perhaps I was swayed by the treble recorder, or perhaps the rigorous Chaconne, or maybe I'm just happy, who knows. The Cello Sonata inspired by Faust is most inventive, and sustains an argument over nine short movements. One note to prospective composers though, timpani and double bass don't work too well in Chamber Form - character here is the key.

Worth a drop in, here.
