From the Preface:
The three works in this edition are drawn from [Chaminade’s] chamber music, and are representative of her overall style: lyrical, with clear, elegant textures and touches of chromaticism characteristic of French Romantic music. The first piece, Serenade aux etoiles (Serenade to the stars), first published in 1911, was specifically written for flute and piano. Mignonne (1892 or before) was originally a song on a text by the French Renaissance poet Pierre de Ronsard (1524-1585). This poem warns the beloved of the ephemeral nature of beauty and youth, seeing it as a flower that blooms in the morning but quickly loses its color and withers away. Theme varie (1898), originally for solo piano, is a set of variations on a 6/8 tune. The piano writing is elaborate and virtuosic, and has a sparkling quality.
