Notes & Reviews:

Ignaz Joseph Pleyel (1757-1831) wrote a number of remarkable string quintets that have largely been ignored by musical scholarship owing to the fact that there were no extant scores or reprints available. As part of their efforts to produce a complete scientific edition of Pleyel's oeuvre, the Int'l Pleyel Society has undertaken the task of setting the scores and individual parts of all 17 String Quintets (Ben 271-287) using the Sibelius software program. Pleyel's string quintets are firmly rooted in the Viennese tradition of such composers as Hoffmeister, Krommer and Wranitzky.

Expedition Audio Recommended
It's always a pleasure to discover something fresh from the early Classical era, where we may not suspect many surprises remain. The ongoing Pleyel Edition on Ars Production has reached volume fifteen with this release offering three of the Austrian-born French composer's dozen quintets for strings. It's a release most listeners who enjoy the chamber works for strings by Haydn would appreciate, Pleyel having been one of that composer's favorite students. In these superb performances, the excellent Janácek Quartet is joined by violist Bohuslav Matouek.
