Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Few are aware that Josef Weigl (1766-1846) was both an acclaimed conductor and a highly successful composer whose fame - in his day - rivaled that of Cherubini, Rossini, Haydn, and even Beethoven. Tenor Donald George and fortepianist Lucy Mauro merge their talents in support of music by this neglected, yet deserving composer in historically informed performance.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
George has the right voice for this music - what is generally called a Mozart tenor. the timbre is pleasing and his performances are spirited and charming. Mauro plays on a delicate sounding 1996 fortepiano by John Lyon (after one by Anton Walter of Vienna). Her playing is also spirited and charming. Notes are supplied, and the listener is referred to a website for texts and translations plus summaries of each piece.
