Description: The Haydn is the guitarist's reworking of an anonymous late 18th century transcription of Haydn's early string quartet Op. 2/2. The Schnabel is an original work for these forces, undated but in late Classical style. Why you'd couple these with a 1995 piece by a jazz guitarist is beyond me and no one is going to buy it for that but it's relatively harmless. Han Jonkers (guitar), Casal Quartet.
