Notes and Editorial Reviews

Romantic music? Well maybe this CD has several works which could be considered as very early romantic music indeed, if at all. The first two works are definitely inspired by Mozart. De Puy could perhaps be considered a Dane or a Swiss or a Swede, after all he lived a very adventurous life living in many places. Several works are now available in other recordings, for instance the fantastic the complete Drot and Marsk. Here we are definitely into romantics, what a lovely opera! Weber and Wagner perhaps were likely the source of inspiration? Horneman is close to Mendelssohn in style. - Sterling Records

"The performances are very much in touch with the predominantly fleet (and often
Read more Mozartian) elegance of this music and the beefy recording has an apposite weight. Recommended." - Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International

---------

This album first appeared in America, licensed to Turnabout and became a favorite at several classical radio stations for filling a few minutes at the top of the hour with something that sounds fun and familiar yet unknown to listeners. The Weyse overture is strongly reminiscent of Mozart's overtures without copying them, and very good Mozart at that, and the Hartmann piece employs surprisingly Beethovian dotted rhythms. - Greg La Traille, ArkivMusic Read less
