CDA 1683-2 Romantic Quintets for Clarinet and String Quartet Vol.2
Ewald Strässer and Henri Marteau belong to the same generation of musicians, but their origin and course of life are very different.
In their compositions, Strässer and Marteau had in common that they never abandoned tonality, nor did they follow experimental paths.
