Quartets for Low Strings: Sonatas 1-6
- (Roberto Sensi)
- Format: CD
- Features: 2PC
As a chief representative of early Viennese classicism, Georg Christoph Wagenseil (1715-1777) united Italian, French and German stylistic elements in his works. The Six Quartets for Low Strings on this double disc occupy a special position in his chamber music, simply by virtue of their unusual scoring and the type of classical four-movement quartet that was just coming into being. Piccolo Concerto Wien under the direction of Roberto Sensi introduces US to a music notable both for it's music-historical significance and that typically Viennese quality: charm.
