Virtuoso pianist Carl Czerny was a pupil and friend of Beethoven in Vienna. His prodigious output as a composer included numerous sets of variations on operatic themes, both with orchestra [Naxos 8573254] and, as with the Trois Rondeaux, Op.374 on themes by Rossini and Bellini, in the form of entertaining chamber music.

With its cadenza and technical flourishes the Introduction, Variations and Finale, Op.80 is composed in true concerto style, while the elegance and refined artistry of the Rondoletto and Duo concertant are both characteristic of a Classical master whose works have only recently started to gain wider recognition.

Overshadowed by giants such as Mozart and Beethoven, the music of Carl Czerny beyond the Studies for Piano known to every student is only now emerging as work of the highest quality and substance. Naxos is leading this exploration of new discoveries. None of the works in this program are widely available on recordings and only the Duo concertant Op.129 remains a relatively familiar repertoire piece in concert halls today.

Performed by award-winning flautist Kazunori Seo and renowned pianist and seasoned accompanist Makato Ueno, this collection of virtuoso masterpieces will further highlight the craftsmanship of this neglected master of the Classical genre.
