Catalogue Number: 04N036
Label: Marquis Classics
Description: This trio of sonatas (the first two with violin, the third with viola) date from around 1798 and are everywhere permeated by the composer's youthful freshness, genial humor and melodic inventiveness and his personal combination of Classical form and lyrical voice with the glittering virtuoso keyboard part look forward to the works from his mature period. Paul Luchkow (violin, viola), Michael Jarvis (anon. c. 1800 fortepiano).
