Notes & Reviews:
In 1900 the great music scholar Hugo Riemann numbered Johann Friedrich Fasch "among the most outstanding contemporaries of Bach" and "among the most important pioneers of the new style that entirely supplanted the older one from Haydn and Mozart onward." Riemann's words about the Zerbst court music director had little effect when he wrote them; it is only today, in the era of discographic discovery that Fasch's name is more frequently heard in music circles. On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Fasch's death, Ludger Remy presents the recording premieres of six sumptuous orchestral works written by Fasch for the Dresden court ensemble.
