Catalogue Number: 02R022
Label: Champs Hill
Description: The third and penultimate volume in this series brings more of the same: serenade-like pieces of a Mozartian grace, full of optimism and sunlight, veritable anti-depressants in themselves. The latter two date from the first two months of 1923 when the composer was plainly bursting with delight at his impending move to the beautiful house “Gaudeamus” designed by his son. Roentgen even goes minor-key in the Tenth and it’s a little dark and ominous in its first movement and reserved in its second but the finale is back to irrepressible cheer. Twelve down and four to go... Lendvai String Trio.
