Description: This Englishman is known, if at all nowadays, for the more than three dozen operas and pantomimes he wrote. He wrote nine string trios between 1792 and 1796 and they show his melodic facility and interest in folk music while his friendship with Haydn may also have produced some musical echoes in these attractive pieces. Trio Szabadi.
