By Edita Keglerova and Hipocondria Ensemble. By Joseph Anton Steffan. Classical. CD. Naxos #UP0211. Published by Naxos (NX.UP0211).

This release includes four Concertos for harpsichord written by Joseph Anton Steffan who was one of the most prominent composers of Czech origin living in Vienna in 18th century. He was born in the small Bohemian village of Kopidlno, and thanks to his talent he made an international name for himself. In his best works he touched on the new horizon of Romanticism. His compositions became some of the most substantial sources of Mozart's inspiration. His catalog is dedicated primarily to keyboard instruments- in addition to other compositions he wrote more than 40 keyboard concertos. He was a favorite composer among the noble families and rich burghers, although he has now been almost forgotten in music history. The present release features Edita Keglerova and the Hipocondria Ensemble performing Steffan's Concertos for Harpsichord.
