Notes & Reviews:
An iconic record from the melos ensemble of london, this collection of two well-known (debussy, ravel) and two rarities (roussel, ropartz) of the chamber music repertoire was issued in both its lp and cd incarnations to great acclaim. It was recorded in the unusually spacious acoustic of walthamstow assembly hall and its late producer, ray minshull, provides an amusing recollection of the genesis of this now legendary recording.
A desert island disc if ever there was one! The ethereal Debussy sonata and the equally heavenly Ravel Introduction and Allegro receive immaculate performances that have not been surpassed since the present record appeared in the early 1960s...Inspired playing and beautifully balanced recorded sound.
