Based merely on my desire to hear this music, without listening to any samples as this had been out of stock for several years here I found and purchased this release from Amazon UK used at several times what its now available here. My efforts were and continue to be abundantly rewarded with some of the most elegant music I've ever heard. Without knowing anything about The Ambache I give them full marks for this sometimes achingly beautiful performance but I found the following remarks on the Ensemble's web page;

"The Ambache, an eminent group of five on this disc, play it all superbly well, the crowning duo of Ambache and Crayford in the beautiful Six Pieces rounding off a highly enjoyable feast of unfamiliar music." Christopher Fifield, Music Web

"Wonderful playing from the Ambache. You can sense the players' enjoyment of Respighi's rich textures, and technically they are completely reliable. The recorded sound is first-rate. This one is a very definite winner, and I recommend it highly." Fanfare

"I found these performances most enjoyable, and the recordings are excellent." Gramophone

"This CD has received a five star rating for both performance and recording
in the March 2002 issue of the BBC Music Magazine."

Never hearing a Chandos CD to sound anything but excellent I wouldn't hesitate adding this to your Chamber Music Collection.
A dimly lit late evening relaxing with this music could wash years of care and stress from your spirit. Its wonderful.

Ok, so Respighi’s Roman trilogy really is his masterpiece(s). But there is much more to Respighi, and it is definitely well worth discovering. Now, one of the most striking qualities of his output is his skill as an orchestrator, but even beyond his orchestral music there is quite a lot to enjoy and savor, and the chamber works on this disc are all highly recommendable for anyone with a modicum of interest in the byways of late romantic or post-romantic music. All the works were written during the first decade of the twentieth century, and all of them are brimful with good ideas, catchy themes, rapturously beautiful moments and imagination, all used for maximum effect by someone who clearly knew how to develop his material effectively.

All works are also more obviously romantic than some of Respighi’s later works – the influence of Brahms is ever-present, though it is tempered by an often sunny attitude and an aptitude for lighter textures. The piano quintet is somewhat weirdly balanced – it is over in 17 minutes, yet the first movement (of three) takes up more than 10 of those. And perhaps it is a bit on the long side for its material, yet it makes a powerful impact, with plenty of colors to go. The following two movements are rather light and easy on the ear. The string quartet, however, is the major discovery – a substantial, finely constructed and inventive work with plenty of magnificent moments pulled together into a powerful whole, and with a particularly impressive Presto third movement. The six pieces for violin and piano vary from the reflective to the salon-like, but overall these are rewarding works – though they are perhaps best enjoyed separately rather than listened to straight through.

The performances are absolutely first-rate.

A fine recording. I making an effort to locate the unusual works by Respighi. The two chamber pieces for quartet and piano are a delight. It is a great addition to CD libraries.
