Salvatore Accardo plays first violin for this recording of compositional works by Rossini. Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868) wrote his six sonatas for two violins, cello and double-bass in 1804, and scholars only discovered them in the Library of Congress after World War II. Most often, we hear them in their transcriptions for small string orchestra, but it's especially nice to hear them as the original scores arrange them, for string quartet. Here, Accardo and his friends give them most-elegant interpretations. First Impression Music has also afforded the recording the most-beautiful audiophile sound one could imagine.
