Catalogue Number: 01W007
Reference: 555 094-2
Description: Mayer composed these two works at the end of the 1850s. At the time she was an esteemed composer residing in Berlin: most of her works were performed with success, and she enjoyed broad recognition in music circles. Her model in formal matters was not so much Mozart or Beethoven but Schumann, whose sole Piano Quartet, Op. 47 had been published a good fifteen years before. No repertoire duplication with the Capriccio disc which came out in October 2018 (10U001). Mariani Piano Quartet.
