Review By Barry Brenesal ,Fanfare,November 2012

The First String Quartet of 1927 is music of immense vitality, recalling Ravel most in its bookend movements, with Roussel hovering over the scherzo. The slow movement is the most original thing in the work, essentially a three-voice fugue of solemn splendor. The Sonatina was composed in 1930, and premiered to great success the following year. Its first two movements are respectively pastoral and melancholy, while its third moves between a scampering, manic theme…and one reminiscent of the second movement. It is light yet technically astute, and unfailingly inventive.
