Marc Coppey performs a programme of works composed in 1915 with the Irish pianist Finghin Collins in the Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo. Claude Debussy had considered calling this sonata for cello and piano Pierrot angry with the moon. The work's commedia dell'arte spirit will give the opening of the recital a sarcastic, melancholy tone, where the cello is reminiscent of a guitar or a mandolin. Following this, Malinconia by Sibelius will add an even more serious tone. The recital will finish with a final piece from the 1910s: Sonata for cello and piano by British composer Frank Bridge.
