Description: Our Pleyel orgy continues with more music for domestic occasions, only one of these works having a third, slow, movement while the rest are fast-rondo or fast-minuet pieces always containing a motif or a fragment of melody memorable enough to demand immediate rehearing. Pleyel was Haydn's pupil and had absorbed Mozart's piano writing style and both show through here delightfully. Pleyel Trio Wien (period instruments). 2002 release.
