Notes & Reviews:

The extraordinary success of the first volume of Ropartz' Quartets is a good omen for this new volume comprising the three last quartets. Several years back, Timpani had published the Fourth Quartet as part of an anthology but for the present release, it was recorded again, all the more since the Quatuor Stanislas has changed its second violinist in the meanwhile. Ropartz here steps back to a more classical language, without losing any of his energy; this may be heard in the astonishing Fifth Quartet, written in one single movement balanced between dreamlike passages and more fiery episodes. The cover art reproduces another part of the wood inlay work by the Ecole de Nancy as used in the first volume. * PREMIERE RECORDINGS!!!
