Little is known about Grétry’s six youthful string quartets op. 3. They appear to have been composed and performed while this Liège composer was living in Rome, and are his only chamber music publication. These graceful and vivacious pieces were probably well received by the public of the time, which was sensing the beginnings of a stylistic renewal with an emphasis on expressivity and elegance.
