Description: The mixed winds and strings septet (1803) and octet (1813) have soloistic violins and horns, Italianate operatic flavors, Bohemian echoes, a Polonaise in one, a theme almost identical to one in Schubert's later Octet in the other... in short a pinch of everything current and popular at the time. The early piano quartet (1780) is in the world of Mozart and Mannheim. Consortium Classicum; Dieter Klöcker (clarinet).
