I finally found this very nice disc (the edition that does not show properly but the "white one" might be easier to find) at a good price. 3 string quartets by the Jadin brothers, the precocious Hyacinthe who died of tuberculosis at 24 (1776-1800) and his older brother Louis-Emmanuel who lived into his mid-80s (1768-1853!). Both wrote quite a bit more chamber music, most of which remains unrecorded to my knowledge.



I hope to get the harmonia mundi disc with Schobert chamber music and another one with music by Padre Soler today or in monday's post...

I like that, Jo. I have some Jadin (mostly H, a little L-E), it is really enjoyable music. :)

I have another disc with string trios by Hyacinthe (les adieux/NCA) and one with piano sonatas (Pennetier/harmonia mundi). All quite enjoyable and the composer often has a particular lyrical early/protoromantic strain that sets him apart as rather original, I think.

Now tonight I'll probably listen to Schobert with Banchini/Sgrizzi as I just got a nice package of CDs... :D

I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Yes, I have both of those, and quite enjoy them. FWIW, I have the Schobert/Banchini disk too, a recent acquisition. You could well be pleased with it. Schobert was a pioneer of Classicism, the very young Mozart was influenced by him, even before he met J.C. Bach. :)

Ernst Wolf's (1735-1792) string quartets are a true gem from Haydn's generation. I just had to jump in and say it after enjoying this CPO disk this morning. Aces!

Hi, Leo,

I never saw any other music by Wolf beyond this very neat little keyboard sonatas disk. He seems to have been a close follower of CPE Bach. I'll have to look into the string quartets, that is a pleasant surprise genre for me!  :)

Thanks Gurn! I haven't seen the sonatas by Wolf. I really feel you'll enjoy his string quartets, which are finely written with subtlety and structural nuances. Aces :)
