Notes & Reviews:

After Frederick the Great, Prince Louis Ferdinand was certainly the only Prussian royal who revealed a double talent in music culture and in the military sphere. He penned all the compositions on this CD in the encampment outside Zwickau that began during the winter of 1805/06. Although a decisive battle against the French was in the offing, it was here that the prince wrote his most beautiful quartets - probably owing to a passionate love. Beethoven loved these works and valued Louis Ferdinand as a virtuoso pianist, and Robert Schumann continued to praise and respect this noble composer's "romantic style."
