"According to [the memoirs of William Thomas] Parke, Kotzwara was adept at imitating the styles of other composers and sold to certain publishers forged works of popular continental composers such as Haydn and Pleyel. Most of his own works are light, pleasant and melodious, concocted for the pleasure of musical amateurs." Ronald R. Kidd in Grove Music Online. Item #25743
