Latest on ClassicsToday:

String Quartets Op.1 Nos. 1-3

Truly fun stuff. There's not much else out there:

A 2-disc set of his chamber music on DUX

A recording of his op.8 String Quartets (CD Accord); I've heard neither of them, except for Amazon snippets.

A recording of Violin Sonatas, a quartet et al. on Acte Prealable

...and out of print recordings of his Passion (Pro Musica Camerata),

a Symphony in C (DUX), and

some harpsichord music, shared with other composers (Acte Prealable).

Anyone else heard (and liked - or not) Elsner?
