This is, as with all Chandos recordings, beautifully recorded.
The orchestra is good, the composer is interesting and underrated, but the performances don't grab me. Without deep insight or inspiration, they are neat but uninvolving.
Instead, to be grabbed and enthused by this composer, try the symphony recording on Supraphon, conducted by Oldrich Vlcek, and the Naxos Vanhal symphonies volume 1, conducted by Uwe Grodd. Both with acceptable recordings (not as good as the Chandos) but vastly more entertaining and enthralling performances, really doing this composer, and colleague of Mozart and Haydn, a service that this Chandos release fails to do. These are by central European orchestras, and as in Haydn Mozart and Beethoven so much of the time for orchestras from this region (think the VPO or Austro-Hungarian Haydn orchestra, etc), they bring more colour and flair to this music than the often neat but efficient English sound can bring.
(I have also tried ths Naxos Vanhal symphnies vol 3, directed by Kevin Mallon with a Canadian chamber orchestra, and found that also uninvolving, as an aside)
