Description: This Swiss composer's Op. 1 was scored for strings and continuo, appeared in 1741 and is in that well-known transitionary period between late baroque and early Classical with Empfindsamkeit/galant features while the later set (published after 1770) adds pairs of flutes and horns to the strings and offers early Classical music with a richer, more symphonic sound.
