Description: Having just had the Glière on Avi-music last October (10V037), the 26-minute work by Afanasyev is the main event here. A violinist who toured Europe in his early adult years, he is responsible for one of the largest - and most unknown as it largely remains in manuscript - body of compositions of anyone in his period (six symphonies and nine violin concertos are just a portion of it). This double quartet, vivacious and tuneful, was published in 1875. Oberton String Octet.
