Two masterpieces awaiting discovery

Written a dozen years apart (1895-1907), these two piano quintets display multiple affinities with the French chamber music of the period. At the same time, these masterpieces that are played all too rarely bear witness to the vitality of Spanish music at the dawn of the new century. An ideal coupling, revealing the fertile imagination of the two composers and their total mastery of the genre.

Album Review

“The best pianist and the best string quartet of their generation in Spain. The interpretations are simply extraordinary. The musical flight of both the quartet and the pianist, sometimes motorless, moves synced in perfectly parallel lines; their mutual understanding and complicity is absolute and the commitment of the five musicians with their task is truly admirable. Go get yourself this CD!”

"The musicians breathe life, light and shade into this music (...) in deft and sensitive performances”

"The harmony between Perianes and Cuarteto Quiroga plays in favour of fresh, passionate and wisely balanced interpretations. With a natural flow, brilliance and balance, these are performances of reference."
