Description: The fourth installment in Sony’s “Beethoven’s World” series. Some contemporaries considered Eberl and Beethoven as the two top composers for piano of their day and Eberl’s 1805 concerto comes from the same period as his E flat symphony which most critics preferred to Beethoven’s Eroica. Second recording of the Eberl and the third of the Dussek. Duo Tal & Groethuysen (pianos), Frankfurt Radio Symphony; Reinhard Goebel.
