Description: Albrechtsberger wrote a number of "string quartets" which were nothing more than two movement adagio-fugue works, as these are here. We offered two examples from his op. 24 just two months ago (05L036) on a disc which also had two of Werner's six fugues. Here's a full disc of early late baroque and early classical contrapuntalism on period instruments. Authentic Quartet.
