World Premiere Recordings in Pure DSD! 

The album Celebrating Women! is a collection of previously unrecorded string trios by female composers from the late 19th and first half of the 20th century performed by The Hague String Trio. The trio features Justyna Briefjes (Violin), Julia Dinerstein (Viola) and Miriam Kirby (Cello). This album from Cobra Records follows their 2019 release After The Darkness that is also available from NativeDSD.

With Celebrating Women! The Hague String Trio aims to celebrate the discovery of these string trios as well as promote and shine a light on female composers who, in the past, have so often been overlooked.  The album presents a wonderful quartet of four women composers, each with their own personal musical voice Refreshing and intriguing and all four with fascinating biographies, diverse cultural backgrounds, coming from four different countries and no less than three different continents. 

The main work of the album is the impressive, romantic string trio by the English composer Dame Ethel Smyth, whose name and work is gradually gaining greater recognition. Her string trio, composed during her studies in Leipzig, is perhaps the only large scale string trio composed by a woman in the 19th century.

In addition to this magnificent trio, The Hague String Trio presents a lyrical string trio by the Australian Miriam Hyde composed during her studies at the Royal College of Music in London; a suite of five sparkling miniatures by the Dutch composer and violinist Emmy Frensel Wegener, and a glorious fugue by the African American composer Irene Britton Smith, a composer and schoolteacher from Chicago. 

This is a Pure DSD release, recorded in DSD 256 (Stereo, Binaural, 5 Channel Surround Sound). The music stayed within the DSD domain throughout the recording, mastering, delivery, and upload processes.
