Notes & Reviews:

Franz Xaver Richter was an Austro-Moravian singer, violinist, composer, conductor and music theoretician who spent most of his life first in Austria and later in Mannheim and in Strasbourg, where he was music director of the cathedral.

The most traditional of the first generation composers of the so-called Mannheim school, he was highly regarded in his day as a contrapuntist. As a composer he was equally at home in the concerto and the strict church style.

Richter wrote chiefly symphonies, concertos for woodwinds, trumpet, chamber and church music, his masses receiving special praise. He was a man of a transitional period, and his symphonies in a way constitute one of the missing links between the generation of Bach and Handel and the Viennese classic. Although sometimes contrapuntal in a learned way, Richter's orchestral works nevertheless exhibit considerable drive and verve.

The Musica Alta Ripa ensemble was established in 1984 and has gone on to enjoy success in its numerous concerts. They are one of Germany's best and most respected chamber ensembles.
