Description: De Jong's late Romantic language is often inflected by Gregorian and other chuch modes, as in the 1927 violin sonata and the 1934 piano sonata, the two largest-scale pieces here (and, not surprisingly, in the Gaudeamus et Meditatio of 1923). The remaining short pieces comprise two polyrhythmic etudes, two waltzes and a very late romantic idyll. Ning Kam (violin), Jozef de Beenhouwer (piano).
