Notes & Reviews:

"(This) Chandos release takes Faure and runs with him... these performances are... linear and yet full of mystery and drama. Every move the composer makes is heard clearly and mined for its emotional implications... We hear everything (Poltera) is saying... the Nocturne is a serious and relatively extensive work played with sensitivity and grandeur, while the Trio is one of Faure's prime late chamber pieces with a finale that sounds like a storm at sea. This is a fine program and played with understanding that brings it to the listener fresh and full of meaning. Get it!" -American Record Guide

BBC Music Magazine
Christian Poltéra... phrases sensitively and makes the most of the composer's dynamic markings... Kathryn Stott is an ideal partner, managing her pedalling levels to produce a variety of textures...reinforc[ing] her position as one of the finest Fauré interpreters of her generation
