During his long, energetic life Ignaz Joseph Pleyel distinguished himself as a composer, publisher and piano manufacturer. His distinctive musical language, combining Haydn‚Äôs structural sophistication with the clarity, elegance and lyricism of the Italian style he so admired, made him the most popular composer in Europe. Although many works eventually slipped into obscurity, successful revivals of his compositions in modern times have served to remind us of the central place he occupied in the musical world of his time. This profile of Pleyel includes nearly an hour of music by the composer. Audio samples are contained in the text: just tap to listen while you read.
