Notes & Reviews:

Orchestre de Chambre de Paris are now under the musical direction of violinist and conductor Thomas Zehetmair. The debut recording of their collaboration is a luminous program dedicated to two giants of French music, Ravel and Debussy. Thomas Zehetmair, renowned for his amazing discography on ECM as violinist and leader of the Zehetmair Quartet, records Ravel's famous Tzigane for the first time.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
A lucid, eloquently poised account of the Pavane pour une infante defunte: the music's instrumental colours...are attractively muted but at the same time sensitively defined and melded...Zehetmair achieves comparable finesse and fluency in Ravel's Le tombeau de Couperin and Debussy's Petite Suite.

MusicWeb International, 28th January 2014
The feature that makes this new release unique and worth an exploration is its smaller ensemble, which for me translated into greater textural clarity without any sacrifices in terms of richness of sound...[in Tzigane] Zehetmair casts away pleasantries and infuses the work with a raw savagery.
