Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The modern-instrument ensemble of the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra plays stylishly and with commitment... For anyone with an interest in the music of this time and place, especially as several of these pieces are here receiving their very first recordings." --MusicWeb International

World Premiere Recordings! The sixth volume in the compelling and popular series that explores the wide range of exceptional - but lesser known - compositional talent of Bohemia in the Baroque era (and, of course, beyond!). Recorded for the first time ever, the Czech Chamber Philharmonic creates a vital essence to their national ancestors' works, compositions that laid the groundwork for the Classical era of Haydn and Mozart.

 Excellent! March 3, 2013 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "In this outstanding volume from Alto's (Musical Concepts) survey of lesser known Bohemian composers, three substantial compositions by Christoph Schimpke, Leopold Gassman, and Vojtech Jirovec are presented. One would be hard pressed indeed to construct a program of works by more unrecognizable composers than these. Nevertheless, the recording is a real revelation, with 3 sinfonias varying in length from 21 to 26 minutes and offering lively, entertaining content. Like the previous volumes in Alto's imaginative project, the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra plays with elegant precision and panache. Fans of the late Baroque and early Classical eras will surely like this disk, which I wholeheartedly recommend for a fine listening experience." Report Abuse
