Catalogue Number: 08K043
Label: Phoenix Edition
Description: Collectors of late Classical chamber music will jump at these late (c.1818) works of Krommer's. The string trio, in six movements and lasting almost 40 minutes, is in the line of such works by Mozart and Beethoven and the piano quartet (26 min.) could be seen as the forerunner of a genre which would blossom with Romanticism.
