Description: Father Hertel's symphonies (in world premiere recordings) are regal and festive in late baroque style, with the solo trumpet playing in clarino register while his son's four concertos, probably from the 1760s, are worthy, melodic and memorable companions to similar works by Haydn and Leopold Mozart. Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn; Wolfgang Bauer (trumpet) with Christian Wetzel (oboe).
