 Superb Music, Excellent Performance May 14, 2016 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "What a lovely recording this is! Those of you out there in Arkivmusic nation who are familiar with the music of Camille Saint-Saens already know the secret- i.e., his diverse compositions are eminently listenable and combine the traditions of earlier eras with the forward-looking ambience of the late Romantic age, all wrapped up in a cloak of French elegance. Brilliant Classics has a real gem on its hands here with the Quartetto Aves' inspired interpretation of Saint-Saens' Piano Quartets in # Major and B Flat, both written early in Saint-Saens' illustrious career. The audio quality of this disk is squarely in the demonstration class, the performing ensemble is at the top of its game, and the result is a real jewel of a chamber music recording. Highest recommendation!" Report Abuse
