Notes & Reviews:
On this new release, the Schubert Ensemble returns with a program that has been in its repertoire for many years, the piano quartets by Saint-SaŽns and Chausson. From Saint-SaŽns' witty and elegant Quartet in B-Flat Major to Chausson's relatively unknown, rhapsodic, and full-blooded Quartet in A major, the thrity-year old Schubert Ensemble reveals two extremes of the French romantic repertoire and here offers a rare, attractive and diverse program.
