Genuin presents their latest release in the Un!erhört series. This release features Michael Schäfer and Ilona Then-Bergh performing rarely recorded repertoire of Calude Delvincourt 

 "...This brilliantly performed program by violinist Ilona Then-Bergh and pianist Michael Schafer, an adventurous German duo who have already explored repertoirial byways such as byways such as sonatas by the Russian Jews Grigorij Krein and Samuel Feinberg and the proto-Impressionist Silvio Lazzari for this label, highlights Delvinourt’s formally unconventional, harmonically complex, and emotionally unstable chamber music. This four-movement and nearly half-hour Violin Sonata of 1923 is surely one of the most impressive and masterful of its kind in he French repertoire, on the same exalted level as the Debussy and Revel... After this thrilling Sonata, pianist Schafer gives us the 1926 Boccacerie, a hair-raisingly virtuosic set of five rather brief pieces inspired by characters from the iconic Renaissance proto-novel.... Next, violinist Then-Bergh returns to join Schafer in the five-movement Danceries of 1935, whose five movement headings (Ronde, Bourée, Basquaise, Louisiane, Farandole) indicate that by the 1930’s Delvincourt had undergone a bit of a jazz influence similar to what is heard in the music of Poulenc and Françaix, but with a much more prominent admixture of kaleidoscopic acidity. The program ends with a lovely Leid-like four-minute Contemplation, which puts a somewhat sad and subdued end to what is mostly a vivid and knotty romp of a recital ... it’s a knockout ..."
