Description:

Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) was a tireless traveler, during his life took care of literature, poetry, mathematics, science and natural phenomena, archeology, astronomy and botany. His entire production is kaleidoscopic: he experiences new aspects of music, such as the sound of the first ever soundtracked film when he was over seventy (L'Assassinat du duc de Guise, 1908).
This album includes the complete piano quartets by the composer. The first, written between 1851 and 1853, was published a year after his death. It is an early work with references to Liszt and Schubert.
Quartet decidedly more mature his Op 41, composed in 1875, and considered one of the cornerstones of French chamber music together with Franck and Fauré works.
"Technically and sonically perfect". -klassik.com
"I can't begin to describe what unanimity of voicing, romantic passion, and alertness and keenness of technical execution they bring to these scores. And the cherry on the top is a recording of transparency and sharp focus the likes of which I’ve rarely heard." - Jerry Dubins, Fanfare, IX-X/2014
