...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Compositions by two remarkable composers of the age of Romanticism and early Modernity are placed together and are seen to complement one another in fascinating ways. Fryderyk Chopin was born in Warsaw but spent most of his life in France. His work is at least as representative of the world of Parisian salon music as it is of the Polish national colours. The situation is reversed in the case of Frenchman Claude Debussy, with characteristic music motifs of other countries and regions frequently appearing as exotic touches in his compositions. And whereas the French master was experienced in the world of chamber music, with chamber compositions representing an important part of his oeuvre, both in number and quality, Chopin composed virtually exclusively for the piano. In his mind, chamber music was a mere diversion and his chamber pieces are a rarity on the concert podium. It is the task of Giovanni Guzzo, Miklós Perényi and Balázs Szokolay to perform these Chopin rarities, alongside almost all of Debussy’s chamber works that employ the cello.
