Notes & Reviews:

"The Debussy and the Ravel appeared on a Columbia LP; they were originally recorded in 1977; the Faure was recorded back in 1961. In the quartets, their transfer to CD has somehow enhanced the original sound, making it warmer, richer, fuller than before. The playing in all three pieces is exemplary..." Caine, ARG
