Product Description

This CD of sensuous, Baroque tunes is the perfect, romantic gift for your partner. Beautifully played by Victoria Paterson and Robert Burkhardt of the New York City-based Lumiere Duo, this gorgeous collection of Baroque classics goes perfectly with flowers, a box of chocolates or a gourmet dinner with candles and red wine. The title track, Le Petit Mort, translates as “The Little Death,” a French phrase meaning ‘orgasm.’ This long lost work is attributed to one of the first, great female composers, Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre. The legend goes that after before her husband passed away in 1704, she wrote this work as a gift for her secret lover who longed for her while her husband was still alive, but dared not reveal himself. This piece was a secret message to her lover that if he waited, he would experience “Le Petit Mort.”

Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderful CD of Baroque and Classical duos, smoothly performed by two of New York City's hottest string players. Great mix of energizing and relaxing selections, beautifully put together in a program perfect for any occasion. A terrific choice for an elegant dinner party, or an intimate night at home. An instant mood lifter!

"Le Petit Mort" is the French coy reference to sexual climax. ( "The Little Death!") This lovely collection soothes as it seduces with the sound which only violin and cello can create. A string duo for your personal duo. Great sound -- great music.

I purchased this some time ago and am still enjoying it tremendously. The album has most of my favorite classics on it and they are done in a haunting style. If you love cello and violin, this is definitely a must have. Roxy Rich, Stand-up Comic/Actress & Author of Roxy does Retail: A Ludicrous Guide to Boutique Shopping Etiquette.
