EBERL Symphonies

Anton Eberl (1765-1807) was nine years younger than Mozart; he, too, was a child prodigy, and became a friend and probably a pupil of the older man. The family friendship was evidently strong, and after Mozart’s death, Eberl toured Germany with Mozart’s widow Constanze and her sister Aloysia in 1795-6. Maybe it is no surprise, then, that a number of Eberl's works were taken as being by Mozart, and Eberl himself issued protests to the press about these attributions on a number of occasions.
