The music of DohnŠnyi (admired by figures as disparate as Brahms and Bartůk) embodies virtues of taste, humour, impeccable control of form and beauty of style; all qualities relished by The Nash Ensemble in wonderful new recordings which can only assist with this composerís continuing rehabilitation.


The Nash Ensemble dig into DohnŠnyiís Serenade (1902) with gusto, relishing the musicís myriad felicities. ... The Nashís performance of the Third String Quartet (1926) is more impressive still. Right from the first surging phrase Ė which froths and spits like a crashing wave Ė they grasp the emotional meaning of the composerís agitato e appassionato directive. ... Itís a gloriously overripe, at times rapturous interpretation [of the Sextet], and Iím smitten by it. If youíve never taken to DohnŠnyiís music before, these performances should win you over. If youíre already a convert, youíll want this.  Andrew Farach-Colton
