In 2016 Sarah Defrise unearthed more than twenty unpublished songs by Joseph Jongen (1873-1953), some of them preserved amongst the composer’s private papers.

The Four Tone Poems explore the paintings of

The two musicians Lenka Matĕjáková (violin) and Dariya Hrynkiv (piano) possess Slavic sound in their blood. You can hear this in the glowing recordings of their debut CD, which is dedicated exclusively to Czech composers.
