- Röntgen wrote sixteen String Trios, fifteen of which have never been published

- for someone who had starting composing in his teens, it is surprising that Röntgen came to the genre of String Trios only later in life

- volume two of a serie
The Lendvai Trio releases their second disc in a series of the complete String Trios by Dutch composer Julius Röntgen (1855‐1932). A major award – The Kersjes Prize – and support from Champs Hill Records has enabled this project to be realized.
A unique feature of these works is its numerous references to traditional Dutch tunes and dances. Since their Wigmore Hall debut2006, the trio has busily concertized throughout Europe.
'(Their) enthusiasm for these works compels attention...' - Gramophone
