Notes & Reviews:

"Hahn's Quintet is a fluent and friendly piece, which zips off at a lightweight agitato and turns meltingly melodic at every opportunity. The finale's theme has a neat mock-Baroque cadence, but is swept aside by an unexpected accumulation of weight, rather like the correspondingmovement in Frank's Violin Sonata. The players feriously concentratedand demonstrative in Vierne, find just the right delicate touch here." ***** - Robert Maycock BBC

'A pair of piano quintets that are as different as could be in terms of musical expression, but prove to be complementary companion pieces that make very appealing listening' (The Daily Telegraph)
