 Superb Early Classical Era Symphonies April 22, 2014 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "Delightful! I'm not able to come up with a better adjective to describe this gorgeous set of 3-movement symphonies by the Viennese composer Johann Vanhal. Full of energy, attractive melodies, and a clearly apparent sense of optimism and joyful exuberance, Vanhal's music is given a smooth, polished performance by Hungary's Nicolaus Esterhazy Sinfonia. This recording provides firm evidence of the glorious music coming out of Central Europe in the years leading up to Haydn and Mozart. A supremely satisfying listening experience, Volume 1 gets my strong recommendation." Report Abuse
 I love classical period symphonies August 29, 2013 By Richard H. (Glendale, AZ) See All My Reviews "I have all three volumes of the Vanhal symphonies and they are all great listening. There's something about the busyness of the classical symphony that I really enjoy. If you enjoy the genre half as much as I do then you shouldn't pass these up." Report Abuse
