Description: Wagenseil\'s 63 symphonies enjoyed wide circulation in Europe during the late 18th century and he was considered, along with Hasse and Gluck, the finest composer of his day in Vienna. This collection brings us two opera overtures from the late 1740s along with later symphonies (the latest is 1761) all of which are in three movements and which have both backward and forward-looking aspects. Perhaps it won't be another nine years until Volume 3! Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra; Johannes Goritzki.
