This concert is partof La Belle Époque, A French Weekend Festival of Chamber Music and Song from France's Golden Age. In collaboration with the U niversity of Sheffield, and presents Debussy and Ravel at the opposite ends of their careers. Debussy’s Trio is the work of a young man yet to find a personal voice, but it is effortlessly sweet and charming. In contrast, Ravel’s second Violin Sonata hints at the composer’s discovery and love of American jazz. Ravel’s only string quartet was much admired by Debussy, and while perceived as progressive and modern, Ravel considered it firmly rooted in classical tradition.

“Playing together as chamber musicians clearly keeps their technique on tip-top form and, judging by their performances, is something they do with passion. Every city should have an equivalent resident group.” The Observer
