CD’s featuring compositions by Julius Röntgen
In recent decades, especially since the Röntgen Memorial Year (2015) on the occasion of the 150th birthday of Julius Röntgen, around 70 CDs have been released with works by Julius Röntgen. Most of these recordings are readily available from various web stores and platforms, in physical or digital form, or to listen to via streaming. Unless otherwise stated, this discography usually refers to the German distribution company JPC, which has an extensive collection available. In some cases references are made to the online music library Muziekweb.nl where CDs are offered that are no longer available and a lot of useful information is to be found.

Complete string trio oeuvre of Julius Röntgen on CD
The Lendvai String Trio, consisting of: Nadia Wijzenbeek violin Ylvali Zilliacus viola and Marie McLeod cello, has recorded Julius Röntgen’s complete string trio oeuvre. In the years 1915-1930, Röntgen wrote 16 works for this setting, of which only the first trio from 1915 was printed as opus 76 (1924). The other trios are in manuscript in the archives of the Netherlands Music Institute. This CD project has been made possible thanks to the prestigious Kersjes Prize that was awarded to the Lendvai Trio in 2011.

These solo works were composed in the last period of his life, between 1921 and 1930, partly on the model of Bach’s solo suites and solo sonatas for violin and cello. Oliver Kipp violin and Katharina Troe cello, from Hanover and both members of the Hyperion Trio (piano trio) known in Germany, have delved into the repertoire that has never been published before, adding a new musical document to it. the extensive discography of Julius Röntgen.
