5.0 out of 5 stars Raff Piano Quartets by Ensemble Il Trittico, January 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Piano Quartets (Audio CD)
I am in awe of the Raff Piano Quartets. If there is one work that can be called Raff's masterpiece it's this, his Op. 202. In this work he establishes himself as a worthy successor of Beethoven. These 2 Quartets are nothing less than symphonic in their development on a grand scale. The complete assurance with which he handles his materials is dazzling. I think this is some of the best music of its kind of the 19th century--the equal of any of the productions in this form from the likes of Schumann, Brahms, Dvorak, Faure, yielding nothing to them. The performance by Ensemble Il Trittico and guest artist sets the standard by which future recordings will have to be measured for a long time to come. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Every bit as good!, September 20, 2013

There is a reawakening of Raff's music taking place and rightfully so. If you enjoy ensemble music by Schubert, Mendelssohn, and Schumann, I see no reason why you would not like these. In my opinion, Raff's trios are more lyrical than his quartets, but they are all very good to hear. The sound quality and the execution of the pieces appear first rate.
