  • The names of the composers included here read like a "Who's Who" of the heyday of Bohemian musicians and composers from the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. They include F. Benda, J. Stamitz, J. L. Dussek and J. B. Vaňhal, in their time names that were known throughout Europe, and who predominantly worked at noteworthy courts in different countries.

The two volumes of this collection will provide the curious (and indeed already quite advanced) violinist with a colourful bouquet of worthwhile discoveries.
