JOSEPH WÖLFL (1773-1812): 3 String Quartets, Op. 4.
Catalogue Number: 11K038
Reference: HCD 32580
Description: Published in 1796-7, these quartets are in the same concertant style as those by Pleyel to the left, with plenty of soloistic opportunities for all four players. But Wölfl combines this French aspect with the latest formal trends: they are all in four movements with slow movements and minuets (the latter especially witty and playful) with rondo or sonata-fugato finales. Authentic Quartet.
