Toronto’s Eybler Quartet is internationally-renowned for brilliant performances as well as for an unquenchable passion for delving deep into the works of lesser-known composers of the Classical era. Now, the Eyblers have released an album featuring the music of Viennese composer Franz Asplmayr (1728-1786), the first-known recording of the entirety of his Six Quartets, Op. 2. In these remarkable works are found genuine experiments with form, as well as an unusually rich harmonic variety and an abundance of invention.
