Notes & Reviews:

In 1802, the author Julius Wilhelm Fischer ranked Eberl the composer next to Beethoven: "In piano compositions Beethoven and Anton Eberl are certainly now the strongest. Both have newness, fire, and power; both overflow with ideas, and the works by both are rather difficult to execute but then also certainly reward the effort."

The Piano Concertos opp. 32 and 40 presented on a period pianoforte on this cpo recording follow the model of the solo concerto developed toward the end of the eighteenth century - as realized exemplarily and individually in each case in Mozart's piano concertos. Eberl's concertos made an absolutely splendid impression on his contemporaries and continue to demonstrate his originality and compositional talent as well as the strict logic of his thematic work.

Fanfare Magazine - Jerry Dubins
The comparison applies only to the C-Major Concerto, since the Koch Schwann CD doesn't couple it with the E?-Major Concerto. Paolo Giacometti's playing in the latter is every bit as spirited and satisfying as Fukuda's in the C-Major Concerto. An excellent recording, as is customary for CPO, adds to the strong recommendation for this release.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
This is good music, performed with enthusiasm on historical instruments. If you are interested in the classical period it deserves to be heard.
