Stephen Eddins, October 2011

The ensemble’s members play with finesse and acute sensitivity to each other, so the performances have an appealing suppleness and flexibility. The Ravel is a virtuosic tour de force, and the group handles it with panache, even taking some of the movements faster than is traditional in the piano original. Petite Suite is a real charmer, generously melodic and sunny in tone. Six épigraphes antiques, written late in Debussy’s career, is a more austere, abstract work that frequently relies on spare, mysterious atmospherics. Pierné’s Album pour mes petits amis is a simple piece both in its technical demands and musical material, which is light, sweet, and has an unadorned gracefulness that frequently echoes the elegance of the Classical era. …this is an attractive, beautifully executed recording that should be of interest to chamber music fans.
