Programme intelligent que celui proposé par le Quatuor Varèse, tissant à rebours comme une lignée généalogique du quatuor à cordes au XXe siècle. […] Le Quatuor Arcadiana de Thomas Adès bénéficie une nouvelle fois d’une interprétation de belle facture […] Le jeu convaincant, précis, souple mais aussi tendu quand il le faut des Varèse convient bien à cette œuvre kaléidoscopique à la modernité tranquille. […] Le Quatuor de Ravel […], est abordé sans l’abattage ni la plénitude sonore des meilleures formations, mais avec la faculté de développer de vastes panoramas sonores d’influence impressionniste, notamment dans le premier mouvement. […] Les Varèse proposent néanmoins une vision personnelle qui se montre de plus en plus convaincante au fil des écoutes.

Leonard Slatkin is an exceptionally versatile conductor, but it is perhaps in French repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries that he feels most comfortable. The singers in Ravel's exquisitely formed little comic opera L'Heure espagnole, complete with cheating lovers hidden inside grandfather's clocks carried up and down stairs, are all entirely appropriate and admirably clear, but it is really Slatkin who's the star here, right from the "Introduction" that's so artfully linked to what follows. Ravel here cultivates a kind of updated accompanied recitative, well matched to his stated goal of reviving the old tradition of Italian opera buffa.

After a first recording of Chopin's Preludes for Piano and the First Prize of the Géza Anda Competition in 2015, which allowed him to develop his career, the young American pianist Andrew Tyson designed a new program tailored to his needs: two sonatas, one Waltz Scriabine and Mirrors of Ravel. Andrew Tyson has chosen to bring together these two composers whose language seems to be far away but which nevertheless have many similarities, in particular their use of tone, certain harmonies and dissonances. Alexandre Scriabine and Maurice Ravel also lived in the same city, at the same time, without ever meeting: Debussy, Ravel and the French musical elite of the time considered their Russian colleagues as coarse and uneducated. Yet, listening to their music, even though their approach to piano and composition could not be any different, they use colors in the same way. For Andrew Tyson, "Ravel is a perfectionist of elegance, where every detail is calculated and shines like a crystal; Scriabin is like an erratic flame - passionate, disorderly, spontaneous and erotic."

This venerable recording by the Italian Quartet from 1965 was, for many years, the standard reference copy of both works either individually or as a coupling. One of the considerable virtues of this group of players was that they could always be relied upon to play in tune and to play with musicianship. The competition was not so strong as it is today as many of the alternative groups simply could not deliver accuracy in tuning (or even worse, the notes). This was rarely commented upon in review magazines at the time, a source of complete bemusement for me, but as one who was expected to play in tune I found listening to string chamber music almost beyond bearing for much of the time - except for this group.
