Catalogue Number: 03J038
Description: From the early No. 8 (1778), much like Abel and J.C. Bach, to the late (1796) No. 6 an intentional and very good imitation of late Haydn, Marsh's symphonies are thoroughly entertaining (the Conversation splits lower and higher voices and sets them opposite each other) and every bit the equal of many continental composers of the 1770s and 80s. London Mozart Players; Matthias Bamert.
