Review (The Guardian):
Though a prolific composer of chamber music, Ernest Bloch wrote only two Piano Quintets, of which the First, dating from 1923, ranks among the finest in the genre. It has a reputation for being forbidding, largely because Bloch uses quarter tones to expand the potential of his harmonic palette. In fact, it's a work of astonishing immediacy, at once lyrical and aggressive, that takes you on a lurching emotional journey before achieving stability in the most serene C major imaginable. The terse Second Quintet was written in 1957, when Bloch was terminally ill with cancer; it contrasts thematic material of angular severity with nostalgic echoes of the works based on traditional Jewish music that made him famous 40 years previously. The performances, by the Goldner String Quartet and pianist Piers Lane, are tremendously authoritative in their combination of technical daring and expressive power. Some of Bloch's shorter pieces for string quartet are also included, of which Paysages is the finest. Written in 1916, shortly after Bloch's arrival in the US, it consists of a series of vignettes that convey the sense of a vast, unfamiliar landscape in a brief musical span and with the simplest of means.
