Joseph Eybler (1765-1846) turns the usual story about the life and struggles of the young musician on its head. He had studied under Albrechtsberger, been befriended by Haydn and Mozart, but he chose to go to law school rather than pursue music as a career. When his parents' home was destroyed in a fire, he needed to make some money to help out and that's when he went to work as a musician. He never returned to law school. In his day he was a celebrated composer, considered by some to be the logical heir to Mozart and Haydn. Indeed, Constanze Weber Mozart asked him to complete her husband's unfinished Requiem after Mozart's death. He made a start on that task but was overwhelmed with the responsibility and gave it up (although some of what he had done was used by Sussmayer in his subsequent completion of the work). Ironically, many years later he suffered a stroke while conducting a performance of the Requiem, thus ending his own productive career as court composer, successor to Salieri.

Each of the two works contained here are worthy of our closest consideration. The String Trio, Op. 2, is unusual in that the viola part is extremely virtuosic, like that of Mozart's Divertimento, K. 563. And although it doesn't rise to that work's heights, it is an extremely interesting and engaging work. It is in five movements, with a large first movement which is an Allegro bracketed by two Adagio recitative-like passages. The most interesting movement from the point of view of form is the Minuet: it has three trios, each featuring a different instrument in a concertante role. The final Rondo is based on a folk-like dance tune and ends the work with a flourish.

The String Quintet is even more unusual: it is for the very rare combination of violin, two violas, cello and contrabass.
