Of these two glowing piano quintets, each suffused with a serene nostalgia, it is the Second, written when the composer was at the end of his life, which appeals most. It was immediately lauded.

Review By Harriet Smith,Gramophone,March 2013

Comparison is fascinating. Unsurprisingly, the performances don’t differ markedly in terms of tempo or interpretation, but the devil’s in the detail, and this is where this set wins out time and again. The most obvious plus is that the recording itself has more clarity and you’re more aware of the individual string players, a particular delight in the case of this fab four.

Le Sage offers consistently limpid playing, so unmistakably French, whether in the many passages of virtuoso writing…Everywhere the pacing sounds utterly natural: Le Sage and the Ebène are the most persuasive guides through sometimes daunting terrain. This is a clear front-runner in this repertoire. © 2013 Gramophone Read complete review on
