Werner von Schnitzler (violin) & Cosmin Boeru (piano)

In the first half of the 19th century, ‘czech music’ was still limited to single popular genres like songs, choral music or piano music. But in the second half of the 19th century, larger scale music emerged and also music specific connotated ‘Heimatmusik’ (home music). Werner von Schnitzler and Cosmin Boeru present some outstanding examples of this music.

Johanna Martzy (violin)

When Johanna Martzy died, prematurely at the age of 54, on August 13th 1979 her passing was not widely remarked upon by the music world. Doremi is proud to be part of the process of affirming Johanna Martzy’s greatness as an artist. As with previous Legendary Treasures issues this volume features material that has never been released before. Hopefully new discoveries of live concert material emerge, such as this set, her growing legacy and her stature as a great artist will be further established.

“The rediscovery of gifted Hungarian Martzy (1924-79) continues apace with this selection of live broadcasts and concerts including sparkling Mozart and a stunning Bartok Rhapsody.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2015 ****

“It’s fortunate that Johanna Martzy’s relatively small commercial discography has been augmented since her death by previously unpublished and live broadcast material…in fact there are few examples on disc of her sounding less than in first-class form.” MusicWeb International, 27th March 2015

Four Pieces for Violin and Piano, Op. 17


Jennifer Pike (violin) & Tom Poster (piano)

Since bursting onto the musical scene as a prodigiously talented youngster, Jennifer Pike has earned admirers the world over with her intelligent musicianship and dazzling technique. Her stunning recent recording of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, described in The Mail on Sunday as an ‘auspicious entry into the big league’, confirmed her status as a truly outstanding soloist of the highest calibre. Here she is joined by her established duo partner Tom Poster in music for violin and piano by three great Czech composers.

Dvořák’s four Romantic Pieces, originally composed for string trio, are miniatures of beguiling simplicity and unselfconscious lyricism. The Nocturne in B major also started life in a different guise, this time as an abandoned movement from the String Quartet in E minor.

Josef Suk was a member of a generation of Czech composers who built on the foundations which Dvořák and Smetana had laid. His Four Pieces were something of a turning point in his output, widening his range of harmony and expression; they develop from the serious and dark qualities of the first, ‘Quasi ballata’, to the high spirits of the concluding ‘Burleska’.

The Violin Sonata is perhaps the first work that Janáček composed in his strikingly original mature style. Each movement is built from highly charged and intensely expressive melodic fragments. The Allegro recorded here was originally intended as the Sonata’s final movement but later replaced. The Romance and Dumka come from a much earlier period in the composer’s life but no doubt demonstrate a Slavonic spirit that was to remain with Janáček always.

“She is particularly alluring in Dvorak's Romantic Pieces, by turns intimate, consoling and confiding - and always beautifully controlled...Pike and Poster make a great double-act...A fine recording and informative notes complete an enticing disc.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2014

The music of Josef Suk, pupil of Dvorák and married to the elder composer’s daughter, is only now beginning to be recognized for its true worth. Presented here are three relatively early works, brimming with youthful enthusiasm but already showing considerable individuality, a highly developed approach to structure, and, occasionally, a touch of the melancholy introspection which was to inform many of the composer’s later works. A talented violinist, Suk lends to his chamber compositions a true understanding of the genre, while his thoroughly ‘Czech’ musical upbringing ensures strong representation for the folk and dance influences to be found in the music of many of his contemporaries.

“All of the performances on this excellently recorded disc are exemplary” BBC Music Magazine

“The Nash Ensemble plays with all its customary skill and insight, highlighted by the remarkable pianism of Ian Brown” Classic FM Magazine

“Even if the recordings featuring violinist Josef Suk (the composer's grandson) were easier to find, these fresh-sounding, light-textured Nash Ensemble interpretations would hold their own in the catalog. Excellent engineering and informative notes too. A magnificent release” Fanfare

“Lovely fare, performed with great polish and heartwarming dedication by The Nash Ensemble, and all cleanly captured by the microphones. This disc will surely provide much pleasure” Gramophone Magazine

“This is Suk viewed from the 'dark side' and very much more impressive than he usually sounds. Brown balances the introspective sensibility and dramatic onward surge of this music to perfection, and his distinguished colleagues follow him every inch of the way. Enhanced by yet another first-rate Andrew Keener production, this exceptional release comes highly recommended” International Record Review

“Dazzlingly violinistic and brilliantly played by Marianne Thorsen and Ian Brown” Sunday Times

“The Nash Ensemble play these richly rewarding works with style and feeling” The Independent

These two composers are closely connected. Suk studied composition under Dvorak at the Prague Conservatory and later married Dvorak’s daughter Ottilie. Both composers were excellent pianists and shared a lifelong passion for the violin. “Antje Weithaas counts among the great violinists of our time” FonoForum

“Antje Weithaas and Sikle Avenhaus make a real duo partnership. It's obvious that they've worked in a detailed way at these performances but it's their awareness and responsiveness that's most striking...It's a truly distinguished recital - thoroughly recommended.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2011
