Prayer of the Bullfighter
The Sacconi Quartetʼs recording of the Ravel is currently described by MusicWeb International as “The finest version of the Ravel Quartet currently available. Donʼt wait . . . you need this now”, and the energetic performance is well-suited to the inspired pairing with the other works on this disc.
The fresh playing is well-complemented by the CD artwork, from an original painting by Neil Canning.
Alongside the Ravel, in a Franco-Spanish programme, is Laloʼs little-known String quartet, Op.45, which, as this performance amply demonstrates, is worthy of wider recognition. It is Laloʼs life in France, coupled with his Spanish parentage, which provides the link to the Ravel and the other piece on this disc - Turinaʼs evocative Prayer of the Bullfighter.
