Turina: Chamber Music


“the Nash Ensemble's present collection includes some of his best works in [the chamber music] field, making this a highly recommendable disc for anyone who enjoys early 20th-century Spanish music. Everything here is performed with great warmth and a real sense of belief in the music - Marianne Thorsen and Ian Brown's eloquent and characterful account of the Sonata espagnola” --BBC Music Magazine, June 2012 *****

'This excellent CD of chamber music … The performances throughout by these outstanding musicians, who are clearly wholly committed to Turina's music, are deeply impressive. The recording quality is also first-rate. Hyperion's world-renowed production values are equally consistently admirable and fully maintained here' --International Record Review, May 2012

“Bravo to the Nash Ensemble for championing these chamber works by Joaquin Turina...He could scarcely have imagined that one day an ensemble would produce an entire CD of his music but the Spanish traits by no means become wearing or predictable.” --Gramophone, June 2012

'The near-masterpieces here … are the splendid Piano Trio Op 35, the A minor Piano Quartet Op 67, and the Violin Sonata, played with searing tone and rhythmic dash by Marianne Thorsen and Ian Brown, mainstays of the wonderful Nash Ensemble. Lawrence Power's viola and Paul Watkins' cello shine in, respectively, the Escena Andaluza and the songful tenor/bass melodies of the trio. It would be hard to imagine more compelling performances' --Sunday Times, March 2012
