Notes & Reviews:

Throughout his life Joseph Wölfl, a native of Salzburg, a pupil of Leopold Mozart and through him a friend of his son, and later a serious keyboard rival of the Rhinelander Beethoven in Vienna, made himself the talk of the town with his wondrous musical feats and his bon vivant's ways. He is said to have lost so much money while playing billiards in Prague in March 1799 that he had to promise his opponent the revenues from his Prague concert. All the same, he amazed music experts there with his keyboard rendering of a composition by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on four staves without having to change a single note.
