About this Recording

BERKELEY, L.: Chamber Music - Horn Trio / Flute Sonatina / Viola Sonata / Piano Quintet (New London Chamber Ensemble)

Lennox Berkeley amassed over 100 works and contributed to almost every genre. Since he had the opportunity to write for some of the leading performers of the time—the Horn Trio was written for Dennis Brain—chamber music featuring wind and strings held a particular attraction. The Sonatina can also be performed on recorder and piano; in which guise its artless amalgam of Baroque and neo-Classical traits has ensured its popularity. The Viola Sonata is among the more sombre of Berkeley’s works and perhaps reflects something of the times—the aftermath of the Second World War—in which it was written. The Quintet for wind and piano is among the more extended chamber works from Berkeley's later years.
