Notes & Reviews:

During his long and energetic life, Ignaz Joseph Pleyel distinguished himself as a composer, publisher and piano manufacturer. His versatility, one of the keys to his survival in the turbulent years of the French Revolution, is also to be found in abundance in his vast musical output. This recording features two scintillating symphonies and Pleyel's only authentic concerto for flute; all three works amply illustrate the reason why he achieved such an unprecedented level of popularity in the last two decades of the 18th Century.

With good recording, informative notes and at a tempting price, this is highly recommendable.

David's Review Corner
Though others find influences of Italian music in his works, to my ears these scores come in straight lineage from Haydn, with some bold horn writing in outer movements. Maybe they needed more substantial Minuets, but the G major is certainly in the same league as early Haydn, both exhibiting a high degree of craftsmanship. It would appear the Flute Concerto dates from the late 1790's and is played in a recent edition by Jean-Pierre Rampal. It is in the style of orchestral passages followed by those for a virtuoso flute with a functional orchestral backdrop. ... it is always pleasing with a brilliant cadenza in the first movement... The performance from Patrick Gallois is excellent, while his direction of the Sinfonia Finlandia brings suitable incisive playing to outer movements.
