Upon hearing a chamber piece by Joseph Michl in Munich in 1772 the English composer and music historian Charles Burney wrote, 'I hardly ever heard a composition that discovered more genius and invention.' Even though Michl achieved success writing for the operatic stage and his contemporary reputation rested on his sacred works, the Bassoon Quartets present the epitome of urbane sophistication-elegantly constructed and full of imaginative detail-and at times resembling miniature concertos.
