Giovanni Paisiello is a brilliant composer that Mozart probably eclipsed. But he stands head and shoulders above the other Italian composers of his generation. A pupil of the Neapolitan School, he had a supreme gift for melody, allied with a highly individual style and idiom that foreshadow Haydn and Beethoven. Like his contemporary, his piano concertos are little gems. The slow movements are of great beauty.. (07:45), (30:25), (48:19), (1:05:52), (1:27:07) .
