CD Reviews

Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven? NO!!, Vanhal
parsifal125 | Valdivia, Chile | 07/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was looking for a composer of the late classical period, and I hear the final movement of the Symphony in g. It was a big surprise, it has a lot of sturm und drang, simple, but very dark. The other symphonies're quite good too. But the symphony in g, it's a must for the fans of the classical period."
Lightning Strings - Sweet Melodies in Slow movements
Anthony Chandler Wages | GA | 03/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is my 2nd 'musical adventure' with Bamert and his LMP. My first listen to the entire CD, especially the rousing finale of the C Minor symphony, and thus my first impression is of Vivaldi! (if Vivaldi had lived in this period and written symphonies ) Especially the finale of the C Minor and G Minor, the entire string sections sweep us away with urgent melodies that should cause sparks to leap off the bows upon strings. It is these energetic melodies with all of the strings working as one that remind of Vivaldi. However, it is the slow movements that highlight the skill of Vanhal. The slow movement of the G minor, a lovely melody for solo oboe against the soft bowing of the strings is a highlight for me. And the slow movements of the other two symphonies also contain memorable melodies that will echo in your mind long afterward. Highly recommended for those who want to venture to new lands of the classical period."
