The Vinteuil Sonata


Maria's BBT-funded Mirare CD The Vinteuil Sonata,with pianist sister Nathalia, has received international acclaim. Ideal to accompany any long-vaunted ambition to tackle Proust's magnum opus, In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu), it was reading the first book, Swann's Way, that inspired Maria's journey towards the recording.
