Notes & Reviews:

After the complete Symphonies and the Quartets, four top-flight artists here present the first volume ? of two ?devoted to J.-Guy Ropartz's six Sonatas: three for violin, two for cello and the last, a Sonatina, for flute. These recordings are not world premieres but it is indeed the first time this music has been brought together. Heirs of Franck, they nonetheless set themselves apart with the mark of Brittany.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Violin Sonata 2, finished in 1918, begins with a movement with the tempo indication "moderately lively". It is a lively piece full of invention and color. The following movement, just "lively", is more energetic and less lyrical. The Flute Sonata, from 1930, is more neoclassical and much more concise than the two earlier works, and to my ears these are virtues. Again, lyricism dominates.
