Carl Czerny penned an astonishing amount of music, including the numerous potpourris, fantasies, teaching pieces and studies for which he became known. This recording features the delightfully entertaining Concertino in C major, op.210/213 (MS op.197), as well as the highly enjoyable Rondino, a work based on an enchanting theme taken from Daniel Auber’s opéra comique Le Maçon. A pupil and lifelong friend of Beethoven, Czerny was just 21 when he wrote the pastoral Second Grand Concerto in E flat major. Begun only twelve days after he had given the Viennese premiere of his mentor’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto, the same choice of key seems a fitting homage to the grand master he so revered.
