Alfredo Casella and the Pro Arte Quartet
Ernest Bloch (July 24, 1880 – July 15, 1959): Piano Quintet No 1 (1923)
Vintage Bloch! The gruff, wild character of his early works combines a late romantic style with some quite daring experiments - listen out for the quarter tones in the first movement! The recording blazes with life. Bloch must have been delighted with it.
