Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

For their first recording on Zig-Zag Territories, Trio George Sand offers a refined interpretation of trios by Ravel, Bonis, and Fauré. It is astonishing to realize the gulf that divides the two greatest trios in French music; while Ravel's sparkles with a quasi-orchestral profusion and presents unexpected formal devices, that of his master Fauré unassertively imposes a timeless, poignant austerity. These masterpieces, which gain much from being placed side by side, are complemented by a diptych for trio by their contemporary Mel Bonis, a female composer whose output, despite its high quality, is still too seldom heard.
