FRANZ DANZI (1763-1826): 3 Flute Quartets, Op. 56.
Catalogue Number: 04O032
Reference: 605 1791-2
Description: Not to be confused with the wind quintets which carry the same opus number (can't find any explanation for this), these works from 1821 are for the traditional flute and string trio combination and in the traditional four movements of Mozart's. But they are pure early Romanticism in their treatment of the instruments, formal and expressive approach with dashes of folk music, exotic and national styles, quotations from operas, songs, concertos and symphonies; Danzi seemed like he was having a lot of fun and collectors of this genre will also. Ardinghello Ensemble.
