On hearing Joseph Anton Steffan's (1726–1797) numerous songs or piano works, he can immediately be identified as an original precursor of Romanticism. His harmonically refined "Capricci" – whose tempi and metre often change – are particularly attractive, although to date they have lain around in archives in manuscript form.
