Vierne - Chamber Music
Louis Vierne is recognized as one of the leading composers of music for the organ. This release also shows Vierne to be an extremely talented composer of chamber music. Vierne composed the Piano Quintet in C minor on the occasion of his son’s death during World War I. Previous recordings on MDG by the Spiegel Quartet of music by Franck, Chausson and Lekau have all been received with high critical and public praise.

“The fifth release in the Timpani label's marvellous survey of Vierne's music, these two entrancing discs are packed with treasures. …it is the Piano Quintet that makes this set indispensable. Written after the death of Vierne's son, the raw emotions attest to the composer's desire to 'bury him in a roar of thunder and not in the plaintive bleating of a resigned, complacent sheep'. Emotion and technique combine to stunning effect, especially when allied, as in the other works, to first-rate performances and sound.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2006 *****
