Notes & Reviews:

The names of the brothers Anton and Carl Stamitz, just like that of their father, Jan Vaclav Stamic, are primarily synonymous with Mannheim and the local orchestra, which as early as from the middle of the 18th century set new trends in instrumental music. Both of them arose from this milieu, yet their masterly violin playing was later admired by listeners in Paris and other European music centres. The Stamitz brothers' concertos afford soloists prodigious scope for virtuosity and musicality. And on this album the soloists in question make use of it to the full, thereby providing us with the opportunity to enjoy an hour's worth of music in the style of one of the most significant music centres of the second half of the 18th century.
