FRANZ KROMMER (1759-1831): Symphonies No. 6 in D and No. 9 in C.
Catalogue Number: 07W004
Reference: 555 337-2
Description: As we said when the second volume of this series came out two years ago (04T006): “Listening to the six symphonies so far released in this series one becomes more and more incredulous that they have been almost unknown and almost never recorded. Dynamic, dramatic, energetic, richly orchestrated, they are not far below the best of late Haydn and early Schubert”. These two symphonies from 1823 and 1830 carry on the same way and leave us lacking only the Eighth. Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana; Howard Griffiths.
