At the beginning of his career, the Viennese pianist-composer Anton Eberl (1765–1807) had to put up with the doubtful flattery of seeing some of his works published under the name of Mozart, who was a friend and supporter. But Eberl’s charming and elegant music deserves to be remembered in its own right: it engages in remarkably imaginative and experimental formal innovations, developing the Viennese Classical style beyond the point at which Mozart had left it, to a degree of refinement that led Eberl’s contemporaries to prefer his compositions to Beethoven’s. Heejung Kang received her doctorate in Piano Performance at the College of Music at the University of North Texas in 2004. For Toccata Classics she has recorded the first in a planned series of the piano music of Reinhard Oppel. Currently she teaches as an adjunct professor in piano at the University of North Texas. Active both as a soloist and a chamber musician, violinist Dayeon Hong has performed in venues across the globe, and has served as leader of a number of Korean orchestras.
