Description: All of these works were written for the top-listed Earl and all feature the unusual combination of two flutes and cello (with J.C. Bach) adding a viola to the texture (and it's worth noting that Haydn's G major trio is a set of variations on an original song written by the Earl). Wilbert Hazelet, Marion Moonen (flutes), Bernadette Verhagen (viola), Barbara Kerig (cello). New release.
