Notes and Editorial Reviews

Quartetto Italiano. Philips 420 894-2 [with Ravel: Quartet in F]. Reissued on Philips 464 699

The Quartetto Italiano offer typically passionate, lyrical accounts of the Debussy and Ravel quartets. The recording is very close-up, even getting a bit of street noise from Vevey, Switzerland, as it sounded in August 1965. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection.
