Notes & Reviews:

This CD presents the Jena Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Frank Cramer's world premiere recording of Finn Høffding's rarely performed Third Symphony and the slightly later fantasias for orchestra Evolution and Det er ganske vist. The repertoire has been specially selected by Høffding's pupil and lifelong friend Per Nørgård.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Joseph Balthasar Hochreither (1669-1731) was trained in Salzburg probably under the tutelage of two of the luminaries of the era: Heinrich Ignaz von Biber and Georg Muffat. Alas, Hochreither lacks much of their genius. The Requiem is an early work, dating from around 1712, while the Jubilus Sacer Mass comes from the year of his death. Gunar Letzbar writes in his notes "This is 'Catholic Baroque music' to the finest degree!" No doubt, Hochreither is a capable composer. His use of harmony is rather simple and a bit predictable, but his music sounds pleasant and has plenty of color with its combination of vocal soloists and impressive corps of brass players and timpani. In any case, Ars Antiqua Austria and the boychoir sound wonderful. Notes are in English, but the Latin texts have German translations only.
