Another overlooked composer who has been getting some attention in recent years. Guy Ropartz was all but unheard of since shortly after his death in 1955. He has lately (over the past twenty years) gotten a revival of sorts, with some of his orchestral works being performed and recorded by various ensembles around the world.

Tonight it’s his chamber music – his String Quartet Number 6, as performed in this Radio studio broadcast  from around 1951 by The Pascal String Quartet, featuring Leon Pascal, Mauric Crut, Jacques Dumont and Robert Salles.
