Catalogue Number: 06J039
Reference: 777 315
Description: First issued in 1787, some editions of these quartets bear a dedication to Frederick the Great, hence their title. They are in Pleyel's typical style - three movements (except for No. 8 which has only two), concertante roles for all four players, simple textures and a concentration on long, lyrical lines. In other words, the opposite of his teacher Haydn's motivic, thematic construction. Pleyel Quartet Köln.
