HAGUE STRING TRIO

www.nativedsd.com; COBRA0065

This set takes its title from Elie Wiesel’s narrative of his experiences during the Holocaust, this set soon develops into a celebration of these composers, not just a memorial to them. The Hague String Trio has a wonderful fluidity and tension to its playing, whether in the rhythmic – and all too short – Krása fugue, written in the Terezín ghetto, or Dick Kattenburg’s : world premiere recording. The trio is well-served by a close-focused, intimate and rather dry recording by Tom Peteers (Renswoude, The Netherlands), throwing all the attention on the quality of the playing and music-making to fine effect.
