Munktell: Violin Sonata, Op. 21, 10 Mélodies & Kleines Trio

This is the first ever album devoted to the chamber music of Helena Munktell, one of the earliest female composers in Sweden. The daughter of an industrialist, Munktell received private lessons in piano and song from an early age, but soon also training in music theory and composition. In Paris she studied with composers such as Benjamin Godard and Vincent d’Indy. The Dix Mélodies are finely crafted musical scenes displaying a wide expressive range and variety of moods. The first performance of Munktell’s Violin Sonata in E flat major was performed by none other than the renowned Romanian violinist George Enescu. The third work on this disc is a small-scale piano trio, probably an early work and possibly composed for performance at one of the musical salons at the Munktell family home in Stockholm.
