Catalogue Number: 05P037
Reference: GCD 923102
Description: While there are many recordings of these quartets on disc, even two on period instruments as here, there is no other of the eight-minute Tema variado of c.1820 which can be seen as the 14-year-old composer's first attempt to marshal the forces required for the quartet genre. La Ritirata.
