Long overdue, it is beautiful music and well-made. A ‘conservative’ composer in his time, following Haydn’s penchant for unusual directions in the musical narrative:

Absolutely the same story as Pleyel! The Austrian and the French pronunciations are completely different, and he himself sometimes wrote his name Pleyl, and sometimes Pleijel, too.
