Notes & Reviews:
Robert Kahn, born in Mannheim in 1865, was one of the oldest Jewish composers to have to flee Hitler - he left Germany in 1938 and settled in Kent, England, where he died in 1951. He produced a large body of attractive chamber music, expertly crafted and basically Brahmsian in style. His three violin sonatas, written over a twenty-year-period at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th c., reveal a lyrical composer in the Romantic mainstream but capable of considerable formal inventiveness. This is the first recording of these highly attractive works.
