Three leading soloists celebrate Nature in the Romantic era. Flutist Juliette Hurel and pianist Hélène Couvert are celebrating 30 years of musical complicity, and for this recording they are joined by cellist Emmanuelle Bertrand, who was voted "Instrumental Soloist of the Year" in 2022 at the Victoires de la musique awards. Their recital takes us on a journey to meet the miller's apprentice, who imagines his end is near, surrounded by the flowers given to him by his lost love (with transcriptions of Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin), or the water nymph Ondine, in search of a human soul (with Reinecke's Undine Sonata).
