Josepha Barbara von Auernhammer - 6 variations on a Hungarian Theme

Josepha Barbara von Auernhammer lived in Vienna and studied under Mozart, who she fell in love with.  It was unrequited, and she ended up marrying someone else and having a fairly normal life - other than a minor musical career.  She wrote some good music which (as you'd expect) has a pronounced Mozartian influence.

Huh, never heard of her, but VERY much influence there!

Once again, you come up with someone "new"! I looked for some of her recordings to no avail.

An interesting post as always.

I was waiting and waiting for the painting of the woman to begin morphing...clothes (from then to now)and hair also each done in concert with the variations of the music. Alas...
