This chamber music disc by Englichova, Jans, and the Martinu Quartet is truly lovely. Beyond that, it contains a major rarity. This is the only recorded performance (so far) of Charles Bordes's Suite Basque.
Bordes was one of the major disciples of Cesar Frank. Along with Vincent d'Indy he founded the Schola Cantorum. If this Suite is an example, his own music must be most impressive, in spite of the fact that little has been recorded other than songs.
All the music on this disc is fine, and the odd scoring--for flute, harp, and string quartet--almost guarantees that you have heard none of it. All the instrumentalists play very well, but of course there can be no comparisons with other performances. No matter. This will give you many hours of rich listening.more....
