Description: 52 of the 72 minutes of this disc titled “Music for a Prussian Salon” are taken up by Tausch’s pieces which cover the full range of forms of late 18th-century instrumental music crafted with a skill for shape and structure that sets them alongside Haydn. Tausch was a clarinettist in the Mannheim orchestra before his move to Berlin and his pieces are surrounded by Stamitz, the founder of the Mannheim School, and by two of Tausch’s own students. Boxwood & Brass.
