PIETRO NARDINI (1722-1793): String Quartets Nos. 1-6.
Catalogue Number: 04O027
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Nardini's only quartets were published in 1782 but their form - almost no slow movements, two or three movements only - and their difficulty (light, meant for amateur players) probably places them more than a decade earlier. Attractive and tuneful but no competition, posterity-wise, for Haydn and Mozart. Quartetto Eleusi.
