About

Following on from his acclaimed Resonus debut of solo works by Bartók and Kurtág (Signs, Games & Messages – RES10167), virtuoso violinist Simon Smith returns to the label with an enticing programme of chamber works for strings by Zoltán Kodály and Ernő Dohnányi.

Joined by colleagues Clare Hayes (violin), Paul Silverthorne (viola) and Katherine Jenkinson (‘cello), Smith presents three seminal chamber works from the first half of the twentieth century, performed with considerable elan by this exceptional collaboration.

Reviews

Like the Duo for Violin and Cello, Op 7, the Serenade abounds with acerbic Hungarian folk motifs and rhythms, energetically defined by these seasoned players. Ernő Dohnányi’s Serenade for String Trio, Op 10 from 1902 is rooted more in the Brahmsian tradition, though Hungarian passion keeps bubbling to the surface.  Stephen Pritchard
