Description: Another collection of music based on the court in which the musicians worked - these composers were also court musicians of course, this time from the court of Nassau (based in Weilburg which is northwest of Frankfurt). And two really stand out: Demachi's four-movement symphony, full of catchy tunes and rhythms and making use of a full, very active wind section, and Junker's 22-minute piano concerto, also instantly attractive and a companion to such works of the period by Paisiello and various Bohemian composers of the period. German-English texts. Klaus Mertens (baritone), Stephan Katte (natural horn), Mark Kroll (fortepiano), Kantorei der Schlosskirche Weilburg, Capella Weilburgensis; Doris Hagel.
