"[Benincori] was one of the few Italian composers of the early nineteenth century devoted, under the spell of Haydn, to the composition of string quartets. His early quartets fuse influences from Giovanni Battista Viotti and Haydn with sometimes bizarre results, rather excentric in harmony and melody, but significantly surpassing the average quartet production of their time."
