A Streetcar Named Desire may be currently swallowing up all the attention for André Previn, but this CD shouldn’t lurk in the shadows. Just forget that these pieces were composed in the last 20 years and enjoy Previn’s variable chamber music palette, which adopts a concoction of French Impressionism, a Korngold-like hedonism, and elements of big band jazz most fluently.
