These two sunny concertos (1803/5) show the influences of Wolfgang Mozart in festive mood, as in the piano concerto K503, Ludwig van Beethoven and even Carl Maria von Weber, but there are some delightful touches characteristic of none of them. If this appeals, there are other works of this composer to explore, not least his delightful Eclogues for piano.
