Notes & Reviews:

Florent Schmitt's Quintet for Piano & Strings is formidable to all starting with the pianist, whose fingers are put to a severe test! That being said, this quintet appears for one of the all-time greats of the genre, along with those from Franck, Vierne, and Fauré, but it is typical of Schmitt's writing. It is concession-free, opulent, ardently grabbing the listener. To the large, post-romantic emanations of the Quintet Timpani has added a piece almost diametrically opposed: Hasards, with its irony taken straight from the 1930's.
