Having been considered as a 'fashionable' and 'cliché' composer of his day, Hahn was best known for his contributions to the French Melody, however his other works have never gone amiss. His Quintet represents the engaging diversity of the composer's music. Venezuelan born Reynaldo Hahn (1875-1947) entered the Paris Conservatoire at 10 years old. He received a high standard of musical education from Decombes, Lavignac, Dubois and Massenet before becoming a prolific and versatile composer himself, writing works for all genres. For Hahn, music was a magical art and his instrumental compositions often contain expressions of his otherwise hidden emotions and moods. Suitable for advanced string players and pianists, Hahn's Quintet provides a pleasant and evocative performance piece, incorporating a range of expressions, rhythms and other musical features.
