Catalogue Number: 08X028
Reference: 777 912-2
Description: You could be forgiven for not remembering that Volume One of this series came out over seven years ago (05P001!). Here, Schacht the symphonist again follows his chosen model Joseph Haydn in matters of mind and music. However, far from being a mere epigone, he always preserved his own personal signature: these are enthralling works, some of them filled with carefree and jovial moods. Fast-moving activity with surprising harmonies is often the result, always neatly packaged within the bounds of classical form. Evergreen Symphony Orchestra; Gernot Schmalfuss.
