Swan Hennessy Complete String Quartets 1-4, Sérénade & String Trio
Premiere recording of music by this early twentieth century Irish-American composer by the internationally acclaimed RTÉ ConTempo Quartet.
Swan Hennessy’s compositions owe a debt to the French impressionists but have a power all of their own, evoking the spirit of the Irish independence movement and Celticism without any sense of pastiche.
The chamber music of Swan Hennessy on the CD is worth rediscovering and is another addition to the critically acclaimed catalogue of Irish composers and musicians that are available.
