About

Lennox Berkeley amassed over 100 works and contributed to almost every genre.

The Trio for Violin, Horn and Piano was premièred by Dennis Brain and Colin Horsley in March 1954. The Sonatina can also be performed on recorder and piano, in which guise its artless amalgam of Baroque and neo-Classical traits has ensured its popularity.

The Viola Sonata is among the more sombre of Berkeley’s works and perhaps reflects something of the times – the aftermath of the Second World War – in which it was written. The Quintet for wind and piano is among the more extended chamber works from Berkeley's later years.
