Each part consists of a series of movements (Ouverture, Quatuor, Concert, Trio, Solo, and Conclusion) in various instrumentations—flauto dolce, flauto traversiere, oboe, tromb, strings & fondamento. One masterwork follows the other, forming a logically-built structure, yet each work can also stand alone. Wrappers, in slipcase. $136 (more info... ) [item no.9051]
