Description: At the beginning of his career Eberl had to put up with the doubtful flattery of seeing some of his works published under the name of Mozart, who was a friend and supporter. But Eberl’s charming and elegant music deserves to be remembered in its own right: it engages in remarkably imaginative and experimental formal innovations, developing the Viennese Classical style beyond the point at which Mozart had left it, to a degree of refinement that led Eberl’s contemporaries to prefer his compositions to Beethoven’s. Heejung Kang (piano), Dayeon Hong (violin).
