Notes & Reviews:

Vol. 5 of cpo's universally highly praised edition of Louis Spohr's complete symphonies offers his Symphonies Nos. 7 and 9 along with the waltz 'Erinnerung an Marienbad'. As with his Symphony No. 4 ('Die Weihe der Tone'), the Symphonies Nos. 7 and 9 have programmatic titles clearing identifying them as program music: "Irdisches und Gottliches im Menschenleben" (No. 7) and »Die Jahreszeiten« (No. 9). The Seventh, a so-called double symphony, is realized by the opposition between an ensemble of soloists and an orchestra with more than one instrument for each part.

The performances here are excellent, doing the most to invigorate the music and emphasize its purity. Griffiths, who's at home with a broad spectrum of romantic music from Wilms to Holbrooke, directs these works so as to make the best case for them. The finale of Symphony 9 is particularly well led. In general, Griffiths draws unalloyed beauty of sound from the players. CPO's sound typically assists their efforts.
