Notes & Reviews:

Our Pejacevic edition continues on its way. We now for the second time turn to her chamber music, which occupies an important place in her overall oeuvre. Pejacevic completed her first mature chamber work in 1908. The Piano Quintet op. 40 is a high point in her oeuvre. The highly dramatic Impromptu op. 9 is the last work on this CD.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Dora Pejacevic was born in Budapest in 1885 to a Croatian count and Hungarian countess. After her family moved to Zagreb in 1903 she studied at the Croatian Music Institute. She later had composition lessons with Percy Sherwood in Dresden. Her style is romantic and conservative for the times, though filled with subtle, unusual harmonic twists. The Piano Quartet in B minor (1915-18) is a particularly strong, satisfying, 33-minute piece with an impassioned I; a beautiful, singing slow movement; a Scherzo that is alternately vigorous and sunny; and, an Allegro Moderato that is an attractive culmination. The String Quartet in C is of similar length and structure. The Piano Quartet in D minor is from 1908 and is Pejacevic's first mature chamber piece, according to the booklet. The brief, melancholy Impromptu ends the program. The playing is heartfelt; the pianist and quartet members obviously love the music and know how it should go. Notes in English, French, and German.
