Description: An attractive idea, providing a chamber music concert of works by the two men who formed the most professional and long-enduring series of public concerts of their day in London. Abel's chamber pieces have much of the Empfindsamkeit in them but also some of the "natural, flowing, lightly written" style of J.C., in the words of Bach's admirer Leopold Mozart. Il Gardellino.
