Reference: 301 1509-2
Description: These works receive their first recordings from manuscripts (there is no No. 2 extant), in the Prague National Museum and Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna. Lessel's interest in Polish folk music is present in most of the movements and form varies: one work has four, one five and one six movements (two Polonaises and a Siciliano augmenting the usual four Classical/ Romantic movements). We are reminded here that Lessel was Haydn's favorite student. Consortium Classicum.
