Two string quartets and a string trio. Any one heard these? Have they been recorded before?

Could be interesting anyway.

The Flesch Quartet has recorded the two String Quartets along with the sonata for two violins. I have not imported this into my Itunes library, so I haven't listened to it yet. embarrassment

The Pro Arte Quartet has recorded both String Quartets (#2 being the world premier recording), along with the Rhapsody for cello and piano.

I'm not sure about the string trio. Anyway, it is interesting. I would recommend getting at least one recording...

I'm not sure about the string trio.



The trio was previously recorded by Endre Granat, Milton Thomas and Nathaniel Rosen in 1973 and was available on Cambria CD-1034.

By the way, all the news about new recordings is available over on the Rozsa Society website.

Well Naxos claims the trio is a premiere "in this version"

For the 1973 recording Rozsa made heavy revisions and cuts to his Opus 1 Trio from 1927. This will be our first chance to hear the original.

Great news! All three works are very interesting - as Rozsa's non-filmic output is in general - and the samples sound fine!
On my order list!

After more than one listen of this CD I'm only impressed by the trio, not the quartets.
Is there any technical review on-line?

An interesting response, since the Trio, from Rozsa's student days in Germany, is arguably the least "Rozsa-like" of all his works -- in the sense that he had not yet managed to integrate his native Hungarian ethos with the Germano-classical tradition toward which he aspired. For myself, I've always loved the First Quartet but have never warmed to the Second.
