Swann and Odette's Little Phrase

A terrific post by Blair Sanderson sleuthing the real-life identity of the fictional Vinteuil’s Sonata from Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way.

Since it’s at All Music Guide, there are also streaming samples of some of the contenders, including Gabriel Fauré’s Violin Sonata No. 1 in A major, Op. 13, César Franck’s Violin Sonata in A major, M. 8, Claude Debussy’s Violin Sonata, L. 140, and Sanderson’s most likely candidate, Camille Saint-Saëns’ Violin Sonata No. 1 in D minor, Op. 75.
