Notes & Reviews:

Since Albéric Magnard's music was produced off the beaten musical path, it was, unfortunately, quickly forgotten. Magnard's oeuvre is not very extensive (only about twenty have come down to us), but some of his consistently innovative compositions number among the outstanding works of French music history. His chamber compositions are always in four movements, a mark of his independence from the French national practice, and unwaveringly point to timeless models of German provenance. He died tragically in 1914 in the flames of his residence, defending his home against a group of German soldiers.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
The Trio, in fact, is the real revelation. It's superbly done, with an almost instinctive sense of interplay between the players, and a fine understanding of Magnard's emotional ambiguities and his trenchant approach to form... it's all wonderfully taut, with austerely beautiful accounts of the first two movements and a nicely edgy approach ot the waltz that forms its third.
