Notes & Reviews:

Pleyel's string quartets occupy a central place in his rich musical oeuvre - which is hardly surprising, given the fact that he studied with Joseph Haydn and was later his friend. What is surprising, however, is that Haydn's influence on Pleyel is not as clear as one might expect. During Pleyel's lifetime his twelve Prussian Quartets enjoyed very great popularity, and today they convey a clear picture of his versatility in chamber composition.
