These delightful, elegant quintets by a contemporary and acquaintance of Haydn and Beethoven are central to the Classical flute repertoire. The music is skilfully constructed, the flute and violin sharing the melodic interest while the other parts provide the harmonic background. By no means lightweight in character, these works are fine examples of serious, Classical chamber music expressly written for the technically competent amateur.
