Description: Music which belies the date and circumstances of its composition. All three works were written in the immediate aftermath of World War I (1918 and 1920), yet inhabit a sound world of Brahmsian richness and warmth but in the concertante style favored by Spohr, with soloistic parts for the first violin. The E flat work was only rediscovered in 2006 and has only one previous recording (on Neos in 2009 and not offered by us). The Nash Ensemble.
