Notes & Reviews:

"There are not many piano quintets - the medium is difficult to balance - and Faure is remarkable for blessing the small repertoire with two masterpieces. The first is the more succulent, immediately appealing, with its achingly beautiful opening and almost nonchalant "Boulevardier" third movement...So far the Domus Quartet has led the field in this music, but these American and German players are equally well-matched and polished..." ***** -Jack, Classic CD
