Two Pieces for cello and piano, Op 31

Valse lente  [3'45]
Menuet  [3'43]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Valse lente and the Menuet, while scarcely calling for analysis, are finely written and rarely predictable. Altogether Boëllmann’s early death must be counted a loss to French music as serious as that of his fellow organist and composer Jehan Alain just over forty years later.
