Reynaldo Hahn (1874-1947): Violin Concerto; Violin Sonata / Denis Clavier, violin; Dimitris Saraglou, piano

Notes & Reviews:

Reynaldo Hahn, while born a Venezuelan, lived in and composed in the style of the French. He's best known for his composition of songs, bur wrote a great deal of operas, incidental music, and chamber works as well. Here, Denis Clavier has chosen to put on display Hahn's Violin Concerto & Sonata. Even in these structured classical works, Hahn's lightness of style is evident. He wrote once of his composing, "The heavy and boring are to be avoided at all costs; the muses do not wear glasses." This philosophy has made his music accessible to the musically educated and amateurs alike. Violinist Denis Clavier currently holds the role of super-soloist with the Orchestre National de Lorraine, which is also heard on this release, conducted by Fernand Quattrocchi.
