The Lendvai Trio release the second disc in a series of the complete String Trios by Dutch composer Julius Röntgen (1855-­1932).

The trio's journey began in 2007 when they stumbled across Röntgen's first string trio (the only one published to date), and soon after discovered that there are fifteen more, carefully stored in handwritten manuscript form in the Netherlands Music Institute in the Hague.

A unique feature of these works is the numerous references to traditional Dutch tunes and dances. Rontgen's
Read more interest in folk music was largely due to his friendship with Edvard Grieg, with whom he travelled through Norway in search of Norwegian folk songs. For Röntgen, it became important to do the same for the traditional music of Holland, and he considered the dissemination and popularization of his national music as one of his most important tasks.

The Lendvai Trio consists of Dutch violinist Nadia Wijzenbeek, Swedish violist Ylvali Zilliacus and British cellist Marie Macleod.

Since their Wigmore Hall debut in 2006, the Lendvai String Trio has had a busy schedule of concerts at major venues throughout Europe, including several re-­invitations to Wigmore Hall, recitals at King's Place, the Barbican and Purcell Room in London, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Musikaliska in Stockholm.

Reviews:

The Lendvai Trio once more acquit themselves with flying colors, their infectious enthusiasm consistently communicated.

– Gramophone

This is delightfully pithy music, strong on folk inflexions, taking a delight in naturalness of phrasing, avoiding any hint of the didactic or academic. It’s al fresco music, too, music for friends. It’s been beautifully served once again by the recording team and performers.
