Catalogue Number: 06I044
Label: Arte Nova
Reference: ANO 962270
Description: Published in 1783 as piano sonatas with accompanying violin, this set of short sonatas was brought out a year later in an edition for harp and violin or solo harp. From 6-8 minutes long, they have slow movements which look ahead to Romanticism. The delicacy and charm of the pieces in enhanced by being performed on a copy of a late 18th century Louis XVI harp. Charlotte Balzereit (harp).
