The renowned opera composer and librettist Leoncavallo was one of the most successful artists of his generation but he also spent a decade of his early career from the 1880's performing and earning a living in the cafes of Paris. The experience provided him with an invaluable lesson in popular tastes which he put to good use in these two attractive salon miniatures for piano and cello. Pieces of modest difficulty which invoke the spirit of the fin de siecle with a surfeit of warmth and charm.
