String Quintet & String Sextet[CD]
~ Ensemble Cordia
Although Wranitzky (1761-1820) may not be a household name to listeners today, he was one of the central figures of Viennese musical life at the turn of the 18th century. Like his teacher Haydn, Wranitzky was a recipient of Prince Lobkowitz's patronage and support. His chamber music reveals a voice of great skill and originality. The works on this disc are scored for rather unusual combinations of instruments, possibly in response to the musicians employed at the prince's court.
