Played with verve

The Northern Echo

Galliard Ensemble, present a stunning collection of wind quartets by a range of French composers. The album includes Paul Taffanel’s quintet, which gives each instrument an individual voice in counterpoint, while combining them euphoniously in harmony. Works by Gabriel Pierne, Eugene Bozza, Darius Milhaud and Jean Francaix round of a highly desirable album.

“Played with verve.”
