'This is Hyperion at its best—backing a new, imaginative group in little-known, high-quality repertoire with its customary standards of presentation and recording. C'est tout aimable, génial—and heartily recommended' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A highly rewarding and beautifully recorded recital' (International Record Review)

'An immaculately engineered disc' (The Strad)

'I cannot recommend this disc too highly. Whether you already know Reynaldo Hahn or not, you're in for a real treat' (Fanfare, USA)

'Les quatre interprètes jouent Reynaldo Hahn avec le naturel, l'élégance et la plus fine musicalité qu'on attend dans ces oeuvres dont le charme ne s'épuise pas' (Le Monde de la Musique, France)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In the Piano Quartet (1946), the opening Allegretto moderato, after the easy and graceful opening subject, adopts a more muscular and impassioned character. Melodic charm and restfulness in the Andante are interrupted by the central passage which sails into troubled and expressive waters and the finale (Allegro assai) rolls gracefully to its compelling conclusion.
