Notes & Reviews:

Ernst Wilhelm Wolf (1735-92) developed into a central figure in Weimar's music world after 1760. Among the chamber genres Wolf devoted himself extensively to was the string quartet, or quartet for four stringed instruments, which for him referred to the older Northern and Central German quadro, a trio sonata with an additional melody part set contrapuntally in trio against a basso continuo. The three quartets, Op. 3, form the genuine high point in Wolf's quartet oeuvre. His predilection for contrast and his compositional techniques lend these compositions their special appeal.
