Notes & Reviews:

The Giardini Piano Quartet was formed to concentrate on a repertoire that had long been close to the members' hearts. Beyond their love of music and their friendship, they approached this piano quartet repertoire with high standards and enthusiasm. The Giardinis play the most famous works of the genre but are also involved in the rediscovery of little-known repertoire, championing composers such as Félicien David, Théodore Dubois, Marie Jaëll and Mel Bonis (the latter two doubly overlooked by posterity owing to their being women).
