Description: Hahn never left the Belle Époque and the Second Empire although they left him. The Romance of 1901 and the piano quartet of 1947 could have been written in each other's year. Sweet melodies, gentle nostalgia, moderate tempos, only a few flashes of passion, everything charming and urbane in a style which never passed beyond the Fauré of, say, 1875. Absolutely gorgeous stuff - the stuff of dreams but what sweet dreams they are! Room-Music. Original 2004 Hyperion release (03F008).
