Description: The next-to-last volume in this long-running series contains two of Spohr's total of six quatuors brilliants (1828 and 1829) with the second being particularly packed with examples of violinistic technique for the first violin. Spohr was just about to begin writing his "Violin School"; coincidence or not? Moscow Philharmonic Concertino String Quartet.
