5.0 out of 5 stars A very good set of symphonies by an underrated composer!, 21 April 2010

This review is from: Vanhal: Symphonies, Vol. 3 (Audio CD)
The Symphony in A flat major -an exceedingly rare key! -is especially noteworthy, also the one in c minor. The orchestra plays with passion and conviction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 23 Dec 2011

This review is from: Vanhal: Symphonies, Vol. 3 (Audio CD)
This is an excellent recording of wonderful music. Outstanding playing from the orchestra and the sound is both detailed and beautifully mellow. Buy with confidence. As an aside,what a rare and incredible evening in Vienna it must have been in the 1780s when Mozart(viola),Haydn(1st violin),Dittersdorf(2nd violin) and Vanhal on cello played string quartets together. Vanhal was highly thought of by the others and was one of the few composers (if not the first) who made a very comfortable living from his compositions without having to depend on a patron ,unlike the others.His music was that popular and we can now hear why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely symphonies, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vanhal: Symphonies, Vol. 3 (Audio CD)
Yet more great works from this greatly neglected master of melody. Unlike the 3 movement symphonies on vol.1 these 4 works each have a minuet - and lovely they are too making this disc even more of a joy. Sound/performances are excellent and anyone who loves 18th century symphonies will not be disappointed. Highly recommended.
