Composer: Joseph Ryelandt
Artists: De la Haye Ensemble

The Belgian composer Joseph Ryelandt (1870–1965) was a humble and reverent man, writing in 1940: ‘If it is God’s will that my works be propagated some day in the future, then it will happen’. Toccata Classics cannot knowingly claim divine intervention as explanation of this first release in a series exploring Ryelandt’s chamber music for piano and strings but offers this entirely unknown but thoroughly attractive repertoire – honest and sincere music downstream from Debussy, d’Indy and Fauré – as evidence of a long life well lived.
