Notes & Reviews:

Encouraged by Haydn and admired by Mozart, Joseph Leopold Eybler enjoyed considerable esteem in Vienna during his lifetime. Constance Mozart even asked him to complete the Requiem left by her deceased husband, but Eybler ultimately preferred to leave this task to Sussmayr.

Gramophone Magazine
The name of Joseph Eybler (1765-1846) is known to Mozart lovers as Constanze's first choice to complete the Requiem. ... these are engaging, carefully composed works, melodically attractive (try the catchy contredanse finale of No 1, or No 2's picturesque siciliano serenade) and deftly orchestrated, above all the bantering buffo finale of No 2. ...the Geneva Chamber Orchestra under Michael Hofstetter give thoroughly enjoyable performances: rhythmically vital, elegantly phrased, and always alive to the music's witty and piquant detail.
