Hyperion Records has this month announced the release of the London-based Nash Ensemble‘s new album: Dohnányi: String Quartet, Serenade & Sextet.
The disc features Hungarian composer Ernst von Dohnányi's String Quartet No. 3, Serenade for String Trio in C - and Serenade for Sextet.
"The repertoire of mixed wind, strings and piano suits the line-up of the Nash ..." ensemble violinist Stephanie Gonley has told The Violin Channel.
"We have played Dohnanyi’s music in concert often and found it to be written with great craftsmanship ... it is melodious and it shows, as in the last movement of the Sextet, that he had a wonderful sense of humour ... " she has said.
"He was writing romantic music well into the 1930’s ... and perhaps is the reason he went out of favour a little ... we were delighted that Hyperion gave us the opportunity to record this joyous music."
