Pianist, composer and conductor Ignaz Moscheles was one of the most respectedmusicians of his time, and throughout his long life was at the social and musical heart ofEurope. Studies with Beethoven’s old teachers, Albrechtsberger and Salieri, equippedhim with a first-class compositional technique used to notable effect in a series of worksfor his own instrument, the piano. Moscheles also wrote a delightful corpus of works forflute and piano, seldom heard today, yet full of vivacious tunes, contrapuntal interest, andsome technically demanding passages which reflect his own status as a virtuoso pianist.
