 Czech Composers in the German Style May 8, 2012 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "Although Smetana and Janacek were Czech, the music on this CD reflects careers spent in the Germanic Austro-Hungarian Empire. Smetana's "Wallensteins Lager" could be called an example of 19th century German military music -- not suprising, given its title and inspiration. It's similarities to Josef Rheinberger's later "'Wallenstein' Opus 10, Sinfonisches Tongemälde für großes Orchester" are striking. The other pieces on the CD are in a similar vein, with the Janácek a fitting close. If one prefers the German large orchestra sound, this is a worthwhile CD to acquire." Report Abuse
