Description: Classical works for mandolin, from the early galant sonata by Leone and the chronologically later but stylistically conservative piece by the Portuguese Feliziano and the Beethoven salon pieces written for a noblewoman in 1796 to the better-known Hummel sonata of c.1804 which is the last great piece for the Classical mandolin. Anna Torge (four-course c.1770 Neapolitan mandolin), Gerald Hambitzer (1793 Dulcken fortepiano).
