CD Reviews

A really good recording of three great French quartets
06/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Julliard String Quartet is known for its brilliant playing with just about anything, but they really shine in this recording. I bought this mainly for the Ravel string quartet, which is a little underplayed but really good, but the Dubussy and the Dutilleux quartets are superb as well. Definitely worth buying."
Excellent performance of Standard with surprise Delight!

"This is an excellent album both because it has some of the best recordings of the Ravel and Debussy String Quartets. While this is a standard coupling what is unusually is the added younger Dutilleux String Quartet. The Dutilleux is a really complex beautiful work (not unlike the other two more well known quartets on this album). To me it is kind of contrast to the Ravel and Debussy because to me Dutilleux implies more of the "Les Six" attitudes and styles then it does the impressionisms of the Ravel and Debussy. Still I think it fits very nicely to show how where French music had went from the early 20th century to the later part. Not to be Left out the Ravel and Debussy are amazing accounts. I especially like the complex harmonies of the well known opening. I would highly recommend this disk."
