I listen to serious music of all periods, buy lots of it, read reviews and books about composers and traditions. I have no formal training to be a critic, but I know what I like. Of course I like the famous composers, essentially all of them. But I also sample (on Amazon listings) other composers and buy some that I had not heard of before.
This is one of those. The composer is rather obscure. Even in Wikipedia there is not much about him. But these symphonies are awfully good. They are pleasant listening, very well put together with great skill. The performances seem flawless, and the recording is right up there with the best.
I play mental games trying to figure out how some composers become famous and others sink into obscurity. I cannot find the answer easily especially when I listen to works such as these that deserve hearing. Maybe it is the lack of some immediately memorable theme? But other famous compositions are similar in this regard. Maybe it is just accident, politics, popularity, or whatever.
In any case, I will listen to these symphonies and share them with others. They are different, fresh to my hearing, and I highly recommend this album.
