W.A. Mozart

Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga composed this piece in 1824, when he was 18 years old.
He was nicknamed "the Spanish Mozart" after he died, because, like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, he was both a child prodigy and an accomplished composer who died young. They also shared the same first and second baptismal names; and they shared the same birthday (due to both having been born on the feast of St. John Chrysostom), 27 January (fifty years apart).

The perfomers are unknown. If you have information about the recording you can share it in the comment.
