Description: What ties this weird program together? All the composers are from Schwerin in Mecklenberg. And it's a gift to chamber music collectors of the Classical and Romantic periods since the two biggest works are Rosetti's 16-minute work from 1775, a youthful work but still of interest, and Flotow's 29-minute work which is undated. Flowing and lyrical, it has a pleasant, serenade-like quality. Demmler Quartet
