The Hahn Piano Quintet

Most of us know Reynaldo Hahn's work through his exquisite songs, but what most people aren't aware of is the large body of chamber music that he wrote from 1891 through 1946. Here is the first movement of his 1921 Piano Quintet with pianist Benoit Zhou, joined by violinists Eva Zavaro and Aliisa Barrière, Antonin Le Faure on viola, and Mina Rodriguez on cello in this 2009 performance from the École Alsacienne.

Also check out James Chute's review of Cho Liang Lin and friends performing the quintet recently at SummerFest in San Diego.
