Magnard: Complete Chamber Music
Wagschal; Paidassi; Thomas; Quatuor Elysee; Ensemble Initium
Composed by: Magnard, Alberic
It’s now a century since Albéric Magnard’s death. + Long ignored, Magnard has in the past few years joined the pantheon of post-Franckist composers such as Ropartz, d’Indy and others. + In chamber music, he left a limited legacy but one of very high quality, which Timpani has entrusted, on this Centenary Edition, to a ‘young’ team of front-rank artists. + A further guarantee of quality is the commentary by the leading Magnard specialist, Harry Halbreich, who lends not his pen but his voice for an additional disc, discussing works he knows better than anyone.
