Description: Compiled from manuscript copies in the Library of Olomouc (where Rudolph finished his life as Bishop), this is mostly unrecorded and, frequently, fragmentary music by the talented amateur and friend of Beethoven. Remember the small flurry of his chamber music which came out at the end of the 90s? Magistrelli was involved then and is involved now, now armed with one of the late Dieter Klöcker's Warschewski Oehler clarinets. Luigi Magistrelli (clarinet), Claudia Bracco (piano), Carlo Bernava (second piano).
