Notes & Reviews:

It's now a century since Alberic Magnard's death. Long ignored, Magnard has in the past few years joined the pantheon of post-Franckist composers such as Ropartz, d'Indy and others. In chamber music, he left a limited legacy but one of very high quality, which Timpani has entrusted, on this Centenary Edition, to a 'young' team of front-rank artists. A further guarantee of quality is the commentary by the leading Magnard specialist, Harry Halbreich, who lends not his pen but his voice for an additional disc, discussing works he knows better than anyone.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The performers on this album are without exception sensitive to Magnard's music and play with love and warmth of tone. The recording is clear and well balanced between instruments. There are other recordings of individual pieces that are excellent as well; but these stand up very well, blending technique and emotion in an effective way. There is an English translation of the recorded interview in the liner notes.
