Johann Georg Albrechtsberger

1736 (Klosterneuburg, Austria) – 1809 (Vienna)

Albrechtsberger was among composers sought out by Kraus on a long visit to Vienna in 1783. Michael Haydn had been a fellow-student, and both Haydn brothers were friends of Albrechtsberger, as also was Mozart, of whom he was very fond. Hummel, Czerny, Moscheles, Weigl and Beethoven were among his pupils.
