Joseph Magil
American Record Guide, November 2014

The French musicians here lack nothing in technique, style, or force of personality. I would like to hear all of them again in whatever repertoire they choose. © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Fanfare, September 2014

Violinist Nicholas Dautricourt…is an expressive performer…Cellist Raphaël Pidoux is…clearly a committed advocate. Pianist François Kerdoncuff provides discreet and sympathetic support…to which Timpani adds clear recorded sound that is not too closely miked…This is a most welcome addition to the Ropartz discography…definitely recommended. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

All four performers put across these works with finesse and great sympathy for the idiom. It’s a delight to listen to them, especially in the well-judged recording venues. Michel Fleury is a Ropartz partisan and makes high claims for these chamber works. I think listeners would agree that these performances make a splendid case for them. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review

MusicWeb International, April 2014

The sound quality of the CD is second to none, with ideal balance achieved between the soloists and piano. Each of the three instrumentalists gives a deeply committed performance, and the pianist, François Kerdoncuff, provides sterling support. With comprehensive booklet notes and detailed analysis of the music, this all adds up to a very desirable release. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review
