Notes and Editorial Reviews

The discovery of Joseph Jongen is far from being complete. His chamber music, highly appreciated by first-rank musiciens in the first half of the past century, fully deserves the care of the outstanding ensemble that proudly bears the composer's name since 2003. So, here are Diane Andersen, Eliot Lawson and Mark Drobinsky again at work, in the imponing piano trio, a landmark in Jongen's early career and a score that can undoubtly be compared in quality and importance to Chausson's and Lekeu's contemporary works; two ravishingly delicate Aquarelles (Watercolours) for violin and piano, dedicated to Eva Fairfax, once Rodin's muse; and, finally, the Ravelian Two Pieces composed in the thirties. Un superb journey in Jongen's catalogue, with Read more first rate performers to guide us with elegancy and conviction. Read less
