5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect mix of old and new 10 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
F.X. Richter was a member of the, so called, Mannheim school who was among the creators of the classical style. Albeit the most conservative, perhaps the most interesting of them. With the mix of old (baroque) and the new (classical), the music is very attractive with a lot of energy. Serious music that can also be uplifting and inspirational. Bamert and co play with conviction and the sound is very good. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Still Worth It 22 Oct 2008
By Too Cold in Madison - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
While I agree that it's a shame if one of the works is truncated for some reason, the veracity of which I'll have to take the other reviewer's word for, I disagree that it makes this a one-star selection. It is lovely music played well. I'd never heard of this composer before and, as with all discs in the Contemporaries of Mozart series, am grateful for this introduction. I will definitely keep an eye out for a full version of the 29th.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating music of a forgotten genius 14 Aug 2009
By Antonio Mustaros - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This recording is fantastic as all the volumes of Bamert's collection in Chandos. Richter is a real genius and his music is a mix of the more complex contrapunctual style of the baroque and the more galant of the classicism.
I don't know if one of the symphonies in the CD is a shorter version of the original, we have to seek if there were two versions of the piece but that's not an argument to reject this fine recording superbly performed. Richter deserve a prominent place in musical history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shame on you, Bamert! 17 May 2008
By M. Dubin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have waited so long for a modern digital recording of Richter's Sinfonia con fuga in g minor (here no.29), and what do we get? A first movement which is cut in half!

In actuality, the 1st movement is Adagio - Fuga - Adagio - Fuga da capo. So what is this movement as performed by Bamert? Adagio - Fuga. That is it! The lovely adagio section which follows the first fuga is omitted along with the da capo of the fuga. The fuga is so masterful that it is worth hearing twice, and that is how Richter composed it!

Too bad the archive LP of this lovely symphony along with other sinfonias from composers of the Mannheim School has not be reissued on CD.

I will not comment one way or another on the other four sinfonias on this disc since I am not familiar with them. But I cannot recommend this CD due to the incompleteness of the symphony no.29 in g minor.
