Admired in their day by their peers but virtually unknown today, these five composers created rich and diverse works that, for the most part, remain to be discovered. Despite what the title of Elsa Barraine’s piece might have us believe, these are no quaint “lady’s handworks,” but a complex repertoire introduced to us by the Pentaèdre ensemble and young pianist Lysandre Ménard (featured in Léa Pool’s film La Passion d’Augustine).
