Notes & Reviews:

Once attributed to the young Beethoven, the German composer and cellist Friedrich Witt's Symphony in C Major is a splendid example of symphonic writing from a time when this form was achieving both prestige and popularity with a growing music-loving public. His delightful Symphony in A Major, with its deftly-written opera buffa finale, and sparkling Flute Concerto likewise show the skills of a masterful composer whose career spanned the climax of the Classical and the birth of the Romantic eras. For Naxos, renowned flautist and conductor Patrick Gallois has also recorded C.P.E. Bach's complete Flute Concertos (NXS 8555715), Haydn's Symphonies Nos. 1 - 5 (NXS 8557571) and Gounod's Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2 (NXS 8557463), among other works.
