Catalogue Number: 04O047
Reference: 303 1794-2
Description: Although Marco Polo recorded the Op. 19 trio in 1989 (reissued by Naxos in 2002) and there is one other recording of the 1890 Pièces en trio (little character-like pieces with the titles Humoresque, Cantabile, Nocturne and Sérénade), there is currently none other of the 1908 Soirs whose titles alone (En Route!, Ciel d'Orage, Le Calme renaît and Promenade sentmentale) tell you that Widor's impeccably Romantic taste, elegance, charm and delicacy were still quite operational in a time of European musical upheaval. Trio Parnassus.
