Piano Quintets of Ernõ Dohnányi Recorded in Toronto

June 8, 2007

The Enso Quartet, together with pianist Gottlieb Wallisch, recently recorded the Piano Quintets in C minor, Op.1 (1895) and in E-flat minor, Op.26 (1914) by Ernõ Dohnányi.

Born in Hungary in 1877, Ernő Dohnányi carried the European Romantic tradition well into the 20th century. His works often reveal the influence of Johannes Brahms, who, late in his life helped promote the first of these quintets in Vienna.

The recording sessions were held at the Glenn Gould Studio, C.B.C., in Toronto, Canada, and were produced and engineered by Norbert Kraft and Bonnie Silver.

The Enso Quartet received high praise from critics worldwide for their 2004 Naxos recording of the String Quartets Op. 2 by Ignaz Pleyel (8.557496 and 8.557497).
