Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

A fascinatingly diverting disc in all respects. The engaging if over-long piano duet, Il Maestro lo Scolare (with the two-part dialogue nicely separated on a single piano in the recording) was transcribed from a baryton trio in 1766/8.

The closing section is a Minuet—from Haydn’s String Quartet No. 20, Op. 9/2, while the Capriccio takes a folk song as its basis with the unlikely title of Acht Sauschnider müssen sein (‘It takes eight to castrate a boar’) and the variations on the famous Emperor theme are a transcription of the slow movement of the string quartet with that
