Around Rita Strohl’s chamber music masterpieces, an assortment of deeply romantic pieces for piano and strings.

What story lies behind the enigmatic movement titles in Rita Strohl’s Trio no. 1? The composer, usually prolix about her own music, has not left a word to explain the words she puts at the beginning of each section: “Les adieux et le départ” or “La Prière”. One thing is certain: the Piano Trio and Piano Quartet, each in their own way, embody a highly personal vision of exacerbated Romanticism, and demonstrate a rare sense of dramatic construction. While the Trio, Rita Strohl’s first chamber-music work, written at the age of nineteen, is imbued with tender nostalgia, the Quartet, composed seven years later, is a work of consuming passion – demanding breathtaking virtuosity from the performers. It is also this “fulgurating” passion that springs from the pen of Jeanne Landry, a twentieth-century Canadian composer whose writing is still deeply rooted in Romanticism. As if echoing the waltzes of Marie Jaëll, a renowned 19th-century composer and pianist who, in addition to two piano concertos, numerous symphonic pieces and a spectacular catalog for solo piano, wrote these short pieces for four hands, the ninth of which is entitled Allegretto amoroso.
