Notes & Reviews:

That the names of Hüe and Büsser are now largely forgotten is no reflection on their ability to write music which delights. Violist Lawrence Power and pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips present a wonderful recital entitled Fin de siècle, which sets Ravel and Debussy in the context of their lesser-known contemporaries.

Sunday Times, 11th September 2016
Most of these pieces by Paris-based composers may be unfamiliar...but they merit rediscovery thanks to this duo's superb playing. They make Henri Büsser's Appassionato seem like the viola's miniature answer to Franck's Violin Sonata.
