GEORGES TACONET (1889-1962):

A fellow Norman (like Caplet, Satie, Honegger, Dupré and Duruflé), Taconet wrote sixty songs and a few chamber works and, while devotees of the French mélodie will lament the violin sonata, collectors of French chamber music will likewise lament the songs! Several of the latter are exquisite, inhabiting much the same rarified atmosphere of Duparc while others have a Fauréan melancholy.
The sonata, written before 1927, is a lovely, dreamy piece in the same vein as Ropartz and Ravel.
