This has long been one of my favourites among the series of fascinating discoveries that Concerto Köln brought us in conjunction with Teldec's `Das Alte Werk' label. Anton Eberl's career began in the eighteenth century - he was a pupil and subsequently a friend of Mozart - and ended prematurely during the first decade of the nineteenth century when he was at the height of his creative powers. According to the liner notes a vast crowd turned out in Vienna for his funeral, an indication of the esteem in which he was held and the popularity of his music.

Of the three surviving symphonies recorded here the first in C major is a relatively early piece and one which for many years was mistakenly attributed to Mozart (a problem Eberl was even to encounter while he was alive, various unscrupulous publishers issuing his music under Mozart's name). In three movements, it is a well-wrought and attractive piece, with a certain festive brilliance in the orchestration that reflects its key signature. I'm not sure that I would necessarily assume it was by Mozart if I heard it blind (but then I'm no musicologist) and I'm not even sure I would say it sounds particularly individual but it is a spirited and attractive work in the lingua franca of the Classical period and a rewarding listen on those terms.

The remaining two symphonies were written in quick succession during the 1800s, following Eberl's return to Vienna from a period at the court in Russia. It is on these two works and his piano concertos* that Eberl must be judged as mature composer of orchestral music (he apparently produced several symphonies in St Petersburg also, which are now considered lost) and they offer the listener a tantalising glimpse of what Eberl might have achieved had he lived beyond the age of forty-two.

Three wonderful symphonies in the late classical mould, Haydn-esque with Beethoven flourishes, but full of individual touches. Not to be missed by lovers of music of the classical to romantic transition.

Absolutely delightful though agonizingly rare and out-of-print except for its inclusion in a multi-cd set. The influence of Beethoven gives these symphonies an extra punch of drama which enthralls. I had to search to find a less-than-rediculous price for a near-mint used set, and the effort and price were well worth it. Do give this a try, as well as other Eberl works (e.g., some chamber music as well as the disc of piano concertos on cpo).

2nd hand in good condition and plays ok, compare with his 3rd symphonie, the funeral march. Forgotten composeer but worth re-discovering
