Notes & Reviews:

"The cover of this CD sports a double title: 'In the Shade of Forests' and 'The Bohemian World of Debussy Enescu Ravel.' Both halves are potentially misleading. The former suggests a gentle and intimate collection; the latter promises a strong connection with popular gypsy traditions. In the event, the music on this disc is far more diverse in spirit, and its scope (I'm almost tempted to say "its shock-value") is further heightened by Graffin's volatile performances. Whatever else this disc offers, it's not easy listening... Claire Desert provides expert collaboration, handling even the lutheal with aplomb - and the sound is excellent. Enthusiastically recommended." -Fanfare
