Description: John Antes: String Trios
Johann Friedrich Peter: String Quintets

American Moravian Chamber Ensemble

The second release in a series which will document the Moravian musical heritage in America features the chamber music of two of the community’s most important composers. Johann Friedrich Peter (1746-1813) is considered the most gifted of the Moravian composers in America and his six string quintets are, along with the three string trios of John Antes (1740-1811), the earliest known chamber music written in this country. Both composers’ works are lovely and compelling examples of the genre, full of variety and interest, rewarding to performer and listener alike. Their beauty and grace will be a felicitous discovery for lovers of early Classical music and chamber music in general.
