The Lendvai Trio embark on a series of albumss of the complete String Trios by Dutch composer Julius Röntgen (1855-1932)

The trio’s journey began in 2007 when they stumbled across Röntgen’s first string trio (the only one published to date), and soon after discovered that there are fifteen more, carefully stored in handwritten manuscript form in the Netherlands Music Institute in the Hague.

A major award - The Kersjes Prize - and support from Champs HIll Records has enabled this project to be realised.

A unique feature of these works is its numerous references to traditional Dutch tunes and dances. Roentgen’s interest in folk music was largely due to his friendship with Edvard Grieg, with whom he traveled through Norway in search of Norwegian folk songs. For Röntgen it became important to do the same for the traditional music of Holland, and he considered the dissemination and popularization of his national music as one of his most important tasks.

The Lendvai Trio are: Dutch violinist Nadia Wijzenbeek, Swedish violist Ylvali Zilliacus and British cellist Marie Macleod. Since their Wigmore Hall debut in 2006, the Lendvai String Trio has had a busy schedule of concerts at major venues throughout Europe, including several re-invitations to Wigmore Hall, recitals at King’s Place, the Barbican and Purcell Room in London, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Musikaliska in Stockholm.

“... I’d pick up the Lendvai String Trio’s calling card...These are full-blooded, confident musicians...” The Times

“... The Lendvai trio has a deep well of energy... this was persuasive playing, technically of the highest order... ” The Strad

 "... the performances are excellent - fully into the spirit of the music- with rich recorded sound."

Don O’Connor - American Record Guide - November/December 2014

"...The Lendvais have been one of the leading ensembles in their fiel since their formation in 2006, with classic recordings of the Beethoven and Martinu string trios to their credit. This new disc is well up to their usual standard. In the booklet they write of their excitement at discovering this wealth of music by Röntgen, and their sense of privilege in playing it. They certainly epound these pieces with palpable affection, and I look foward to further volumes in ths unusual series. The sound is up to Champs Hill;s customary level, lively and resonant, as befits the music perfectly."
