Johann Gottfried Janitsch is a Berlin School composer and a contemporary of C.P.E. Bach, C. Schaffrath and the Graun brothers. He composed many late Baroque quartets which are remarkable for their contrapuntal texture combined with charming galant melodies. The instrumentation of these works is very varied and colourful. In this quartet, the third voice can be played on three different instruments and in two different octaves. Our edition provides for nine possible instrumental combinations, and is introduced by an informative foreword by Michael O'Loghlin.
