André Mathieu: Musique de chambre includes two unpublished pieces by Mathieu (Désir and Nocturne) as well as his Trio, Quintet, and works for violin and piano – works composed between 1943 and 1953, when Mathieu had reached the peak of his fame and creativity despite being quite young. Pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre is joined by sought-after musicians - Andréa Tyniec (violin), Marc Djokic (violin), Elvira Misbakhova (viola), and Chloé Dominguez (cello) for this album dedicated to one of the leading figures of the Canadian classical music world. Early on, Mathieu’s chamber music featured the violin as his alter ego. Later, he expanded his sonic palette and composed his two masterpieces, the Trio of 1949 and the Quintet of 1953.
