Midweek music spot: Franz Xaver Mozart - Piano Quartet

No, the Christian names are not a typo. 

Franz Xaver Mozart was the youngest child of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

He was a very good composer but unfortunately for his reputation he went through his life with his music constantly being compared to that of his late father - and being compared to W A Mozart would be a challenge for anyone. 

But as I think this piano quartet demonstrates, F X Mozart was quite capable of writing some pretty good music in his own right.
