  • June 12, 2008 Pretty piece with interesting story

    This piece has a haunting quality and a couple of moments that are surprisingly modern-sounding in a new-age sort of way. Maria von Paradis is great story - blind, female, student of Salieri. But she didn't write this piece. According to Wikipedia: "Her most famous work, the Sicilienne...

    in E flat major for piano quartet, is unfortunately spurious, as it is derived from a Weber violin sonata (Op. 10 No. 1) and is believed to have been concocted by its purported discoverer, Samuel Dushkin."
