June 1914. Nadia Boulanger is at the height of her composing career, which she pursues alongside her other musical activities – concert performance and teaching – though only a few years later, she will deliberately give it up.
Right now, however, she has gone to meet her sister Lili in Rome, where the two young musicians, united by a deep affection, will put their study trip to good use in the gentle Italian spring. Dated June 5th, these Little Piano Pieces shine with a lighthearted charm – and that’s not the least of their appeal. These three sparkling miniatures, published here for the rst time, will delight all pianists curious to explore this little-known repertoire.
