Notes & Reviews:

In the last movement of Haydn's Farewell Symphony, one musician after the other disappears, until only 2 violinists are left on the stage as a duo and bring the work to its close. Sperger regarded Haydn's idea as so original that he wrote a counterpart to it: the Arrival Symphony. von Gemmingen was the scion of a Württemberg family of knights. During the years around 1800 he composed 4 violin concertos already pointing far ahead into the romantic era.

Fanfare Magazine
Ulf Schirmer leads the Münich Radio Orchestra in solid and sympathetic playing, but Kolja Lessing is the one who deserves the lion's share of the credit for bringing these wonderful Gemmingen concertos to light and for performing them so beautifully. Dare we hope for a follow-up release containing the two remaining concertos? Very strongly recommended.
