Notes & Reviews:

"In him fate again seemed to want to grant a master of the first rank. Many-sided, sure of himself in every field, often new and original and yet natural and simple, he repeatedly makes the impression of a choice talent and nears the final stage on the way to immortality. The study of his symphonies is very pleasurable. Each contains pearls and proofs of an elemental musical power." It was with these words that Hermann Kretzschmar described the composer Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda in his widely read concert guide from the end of the nineteenth century. By this time Kalliwoda's works had already vanished from the concert hall, and the same continues to be true today. Thanks to some recent CD recordings, the Bohemian Kalliwoda, who spent most of his professional career as the court chapel master in Donaueschingen, is now an insider's tip to those who follow the generation between Beethoven and Schumann/Mendelssohn. Kalliwoda was perhaps the one most important mediator between classicism and romanticism, and CPO's new series featuring his symphonic works most emphatically underscores this claim.
