Description: This is at least the fourth recording of the gentle and melodic piano quartet (1947) in the last seven years but the 1921 piano quintet, evocative of Fauré in its full harmonies and coloring and more animated than much of Hahn’s music, is rarer on disc as, indeed, are his own song transcriptions. James Baillieu (piano), Benjamin Baker, Bartosz Woroch (violins), Adam Newman (viola), Tim Lowe (cello).
