Catalogue Number: 11T021
Reference: 777 844-2
Description: This unknown violinist/composer worked at the small court of Burgsteinfurt, then succeeded the successor of J.C.F. Bach at Bückeburg in 1796. His only other appearance was five years ago with a symphony and two wind concertos on this same label. Like those, these are attractive works likely from the 1790s and are in the best Viennese Classical mold. Barbara Buntrock (viola), Gaby Pas-Van Riet (flute), Osnabrück Symphony Orchestra; Andreas Hotz.
