The two Piano Quartets by Saint‐SaŽns on one CD.

Camille Saint‐SaŽns was a highly prolific and eclectic composer, two adjectives which may bear a negative undertone, but not in the case of Saint‐SaŽns, a genius who absorbed all current musical styles and forged them in his own inimitable, unique language, extremely well‐crafted, intelligent, charming, brilliant and with an astonishing gift for ďa good tuneĒ.

This new recording presents the two piano quartets, virtuoso works which deserve a firm place in the concert repertoire.

These are brilliant performances by the Italian Avos Quartet, who play with ďperfectly blended sound with unusual easeĒ (the Italian magazine 'Archi').

Booklet contains detailed notes on the works, as well as artist biographies.

Avos Quartet:
- Mirei Yamada, violin
- Diana Bonatesta, viola
- Luca Magariello, cello
- Mario Montore, piano
