Notes & Reviews:

Beck's symphonies have long been regarded as among the most striking works of their kind from the mid-18th century. Remarkable for their dramatic flair, rich harmonic language and fluid, inventive part writing, the symphonies Opp. 3 and 4 (published in 1762 and 1766 respectively) display a rare level of compositional finish that elevates them above all but the very greatest symphonies of their time. Further Beck symphonies may be heard on Naxos 8.553790 and 8.570799.

Expedition Audio Recommended
With their taut formal design, dramatic character, daring harmonic progressions and Beck's skillful ability to hold his listener in suspense for extended periods of development, these symphonies are highly rewarding and enjoyable to hear. Beck wrote 24 symphonies, all during the early part of his career before apparently losing interest in the genre. What a shame. On evidence of what we hear on this recording, Beck may have matured into one of music history's great symphonists. read more
