Ignaz von Beecke, Bavarian army officer, pianist and composer, wrote stage and orchestral works, keyboard music – and 15 string quartets. These three, from 1770 onwards, reveal melodic charm and refreshing Classical poise, domestic chamber music well worth a hearing, if rather over-resonantly recorded. George Pratt
