Notes & Reviews:
This is the world premiere release of a talented composer of Mozart, Schubert, and Beethoven's time. On this recording, the Carmesina Quartet performs on period instruments.
The thrill of adventure and the perfect balance of spontaneity and tactic ... they play with enormous excitement, fill the quartets with passion, and bring along a certain measure of euphoria.
