igenlode: The pirate sloop 'Horizon' from "Treasures of the Indies" (Default)
Discovered a new composer today: Ignaz Lachner, a member of a large and once well-known family of musicians, who wrote some very appealing chamber music. About the right difficulty for amateur musicians to sight-read, catchy melodies that are rewarding to perform (at least if one is playing first violin!) and some quite adventurous harmonies -- sufficient to present an undoubted challenge.

We played the A Minor quartet.
