Ignace Joseph Pleyel: String Quartets, Op. 41 Nos 1-2 & Op. 42 Nos 1-2

by Authentic Quartet (on period instruments)

Authentic Quartet, the ensemble playing on period instruments, has released another world premiere recording featuring Ignace Pleyel’s two string quartets. The pieces are most likely to have been written during the composer’s concert tour in England, or maybe a bit later as the melodies and rhythmic structures remind the listener of Scottish folk music. Owing to their simple structures and lyrical melodic lines, the compositions can be classified as easy violin music offering a highly enjoyable listening experience.
