About this Recording

ZIMMERMANN, A: String Quartets Nos. 1-3

An acclaimed contemporary of Haydn and Mozart, Anton Zimmermann spent a considerable span of his productive life in Bratislava, the then capital of Hungary. He excelled as a composer, violinist, conductor and artist manager. His extensive body of work, virtually unknown today, covers almost all genres and forms of the period. Modelled on those of Joseph Haydn, Zimmermann’s quartets and other chamber works for strings are noteworthy for their ‘symphonic’ writing and expressive melodies, which set them apart from the decorative chamber music of many of his contemporaries.
