Franz Asplmayr was a prolific composer and prominent professional violinist in Vienna during the eighteenth century. His collaboration with the choreographer Jean George Noverre resulted in several groundbreaking ballets, and Asplmayr also composed numerous string quartets, symphonies, string trios, and partitas. His works were performed in distinguished venues and were widely disseminated both in manuscript and in printed form. In spite of his position in the musical life of Vienna his work has been largely ignored by modern musicologists and, perhaps worse, many serious errors about his life and works have been uncritically repeated. The string quartets in this volume, composed before Haydn's Opus 9 quartets, represent an important stage in the development of the genre. Though first published in Paris, these quartets anticipated many of the most important style characteristics of the developing Viennese style, a style which has been greatly misunderstood in the shadow of Moazart and Haydn.
