Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of the benefits of the current “catalog-dumping” trend from major record labels these days is the gathering together of sets such as [this one], offering a trove of music that otherwise would be difficult or impossible to assemble from individual recordings, and many of which are no longer available singly. The 6-CD collection from Concerto Köln is the best overall, comprising some of the finest orchestral works from 18th-century Europe not written by Bach, Haydn, or Mozart, and celebrating the spirit and expressive capabilities and character of a smaller-sized, conductor-less instrumental ensemble. These composers—Dall’Abaco, Kozeluch, Eberl, for instance—deserve to be better-, make that well-known. And there’s no doubt that if Read more there had not been a Haydn or Mozart, we’d be (justifiably) listening to, and marveling at, a lot more Johann Vanhal today—if you don’t know this contemporary of both of those great masters, you owe it to yourself to get acquainted. The Concerto Köln is a premier advocate for all of this repertoire, and having all of it in one economical box is ideal.

 Concerto Koln at their best November 15, 2013 By Peter K. (Fort Collins, CO) See All My Reviews "This is a fantastic collection and a great value at the price. The symphonies of Vanhal and Kozeluch were a stunning revelation, every bit as fine as middle Haydn, and the Eberl symphonies were also a pleasant surprise. I found the Manheim disc less engaging. Locatelli and Del'Abaco were more enjoyable, a bit more like Handel or Vivaldi than Haydn or Mozart. Performances are crisp and lively throughout." Report Abuse
