“Marina Thibeault, perceptively partnered by Marie-Ève Scarfone, makes an excellent case for performing Clara Schumann’s violin Romances (written in 1853 for Joseph Joachim) and Nadia Boulanger’s cello Pièces (composed in 1913) on the viola. […] these charming miniatures benefit from Thibeault’s plangent tone and expressive phrasing. The soloist’s grasp of long-term structure and rhythmic assurance keep Lillian Fuchs’s potentially rambling unaccompanied Sonata Pastorale (1956) firmly on its tracks; the piece’s ‘semplice’ atmosphere is nicely caught, much being made of its sonorous drones.”
