Description: Roentgen, being a string player from a family of string players, left little wind music but his first Serenade, a 31-minute piece from his youth (1876) was praised by Brahms, Herzogenberg and Clara Schumann, which might give you a pretty good idea of who it sounds like. The Second, much shorter (16 min.) dates from 52 years later and is less elaborate in form, melodies and harmonies; perhaps some French influence crept in? The 13-minute trio from 1917 may have been intended for teachers and students at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Linos Ensemble.
