JEAN CRAS (1879-1932): Piano Quintet, String Quartet “A ma Bretagne”.
Catalogue Number: 11U046
Description: Fine examples of this naval officer's sensuous love affair with the joy of composition and with his native Brittany, the 1909 quartet clear, simple and warm, the 1922 quintet much more colorful, with the exotic colors of North Africa and the clear air and surge of the sea sharing pride of place. Only available recording now that Timpani’s 2002 version is out of print. Quatuor Sine Qua Non, Jean-Pierre Ferey (piano).
