Catalogue Number: 11X025
Reference: 777 779-2
Description: This series, begun in 2008, finally comes to an end. Published in 1786, these turned out to be Pleyel’s most pirated works with editions still coming out as late as 1838. The works owed their success to the distinctive quartet style that Pleyel had developed over the previous few years, one characterized by clarity of structure, simplicity of texture, elegance of melodic line and delicious musical disruption.
