Charles Burney (1726-1814) met Handel, Haydn, CPE Bach and many of Europe's celebrated composers over the course of his life and traveled extensively through France, Italy, Austria and Germany between 1770 and 1772 to interview musicians and gather information for his History of Music. The breadth of national and evolving musical characterictics that he encountered will be reflected in chamber music by George Friderick Handel, Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christian Bach, Frederich II of Prussia, Franz Joseph Haydn, Franz Benda and Giovanni Battista Sammartini.
