The German Theatre – Early Romantic String Quartets

Catchy tunes in arrangements from that age for string theatre troupe. Works include Weber’s famous Overture to Oberon, selections from a theatre production about a misbehaving vampire, and Schubert’s suave “Rosamunde” string quartet. Musicians hail from London, Vancouver, Bozeman, and NYC, performing on early bows with gut strings in a Montana debut of the unique stylistic conventions of the early romantic era.
