A striking combination of seldom recorded repertoire. This CD brings together three significant 20th century chamber works.

This is a real find…it contains excellent performances of three near-masterpieces, all of which defy categorization…The Dohnanyi alone is worth the price of this disc, and is played with great gusto and commitment by the six musicians…good sound and good notes…
