Notes & Reviews:

Sono Luminus has once again partnered with the Ames Piano Quartet to create their latest release, Hahn - Schmitt - Dubois, a celebration of the masterful work of composer Théodore Dubois and two of his most gifted students, Reynaldo Hahn and Florent Schmitt. The Ames Piano Quartet, the resident chamber music ensemble at Iowa State University, holds a distinctive position in the chamber music field as one of the few professional touring piano quartets in the world. Théodore Dubois held a commanding place in French music during the last third of the 19th century. Dubois' life ran parallel to that of his pupil, Florent Schmitt.

Fanfare
Dubois's contribution to the genre is a stunning one that can easily stand beside those of FaurT... and the Ames Piano Quartet projects the work with a good deal of thrust in the outer movements and an aching nostalgia in the Andante molto espressivo... the Ames Piano Quartet provides well over an hour's worth of exquisite music impeccably played. So, strongly recommended.

Allmusic.com
This marvelously lush album by the Ames Piano Quartet is a joyous CD for the listener. Unfailingly romantic and expressive, it is an exemplary recital of chamber music.

The WholeNote
This is the 14th release by the Ames Piano Quartet, the resident chamber music ensemble of Iowa State University. Their latest recording features French chamber music from the first half of the twentieth century.
