Ravel's string Quartet in F major stands as one of the most widely performed chamber music works in the classical repertoire, representing Ravel's early achievements and rise from obscurity. On CD, it is often coupled with Debussy's own string quartet.
Paired in this fashion, the two masterpieces of the string quartet literature have been recorded together countless times, making the distinctions between various recordings as blurred as the soft edges of an Impressionist painting.

Claude Debussy wrote his String Quartet in G minor, L 85, Op. 10 in 1893 when he was 31 years old. It is Debussy's only string quartet. The previous year Debussy had abandoned the opera Rodrigue et Chimène. He planned to write two string quartets, only one of which materialized. The string quartet was to be dedicated to composer Ernest Chausson, whose personal reservations eventually diverted the composer's original intentions.
Maurice Ravel completed his String Quartet in F major in early April 1903 at the age of 28. It was premiered in Paris in March the following year. The work follows a four-movement classical structure: the opening movement, in sonata form, presents two themes that occur again later in the work; a playful scherzo second movement is followed by a lyrical slow movement. The finale reintroduces themes from the earlier movements and ends the work vigorously.

The Chilingirian Quartet is one of the best British quartets of the last 30 years or so. They have recorded fairly extensively for British labels, including CRD, Chandos and Hyperion. Their EMI discography is not huge, but it includes these 1983 performances of the Debussy and Ravel quartets as a foretaste of their later successes for Hyperion with Chausson and D'Indy, and Hahn and Vierne. The Debussy quartet is preceded by a tiny work for flute. Debussy wrote Syrinx as incidental music to Psyché, a play by Gabriel Mourey. Designed to evoke Pan's flute, it receives a strong rather than a languid performance from Philippa Davies. At the other end of the disc comes the glitter and shimmer of Ravel's Introduction and Allegro.
