Gouvy: Sonata for Piano 4 Hands in C Minor, Op. 49 – II. Larghetto
An eminent member of the French musical establishment during the 1870s and 1880s, Louis Théodore Gouvy wrote a large amount of piano music, much of it for four hands. The three Sonatas written in the 1860s reveal his considerable technical command as well as a flowing elegance, some of it reminiscent of Schubert and Schumann.
