Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Enescu Piano Quartets are music at the highest level. However, I did not find these recordings at all satisfying.

This music is generally in the expressive vein of Brahms, but with a more rhapsodic, less structured style. A forceful performance is required to bring it into focus. Although the Schubert Ensemble plays with refinement and skill, they do not seem to bring a forceful vision to the performance of this music, and it just seems to drift. The problem is accentuated by audio engineering which is too distant and lacking in bite. The whole thing seems to be behind a veil.

There is a much better performance of the Piano Quartet No 2 on a release by Albany records. It also has a superb recording of Enescu's Chamber Symphony. For the first Piano Quartet there are other alternatives, but I have not heard them.
