The early years of the 20th century witnessed the emergence of a remarkable new approach to composition.

In the works of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor—one of the most renowned composers of his time—and Reynaldo Hahn, we hear genius at work. Known primarily as a violin virtuoso, Eugène Ysaÿe created music that is now regarded as pioneering. And in the piano quintet of the Swiss-American Ernest Bloch, we find one of the most skillful, inventive, and riveting examples of the genre ever created.


  • Coleridge-Taylor Four African Dances for Violin and Piano, Op. 58 (1904)
  • Hahn Quintet in F-sharp minor for Piano, Two Violins, Viola, and Cello (1922)
  • Ysaÿe Sonata in D minor for Violin, Op. 27, No. 3, “Ballade” (1923)
  • Bloch Quintet No. 1 for Piano, Two Violins, Viola, and Cello (1921–23)
