Notes & Reviews:

Salomon Jadassohn, once known to generations of music students for his music theory writings, was quickly forgotten as a composer soon after his death. Next to Carl Reinecke, however, Jadassohn was regarded as the leading composer of the so-called Leipzig School. As an instructor at the Leipzig Conservatory, he enjoyed an outstanding reputation as an educator of many famed, future composers. Jadassohn's four symphonies, composed 1860-88, occupying an important though not a central place in his uvre, tend toward the academic and craftsmanly (though in the best sense of the term).

Listeners intrigued by the idea of hearing something fresh from the early Romantic period will not be disappointed. There is much to be enjoyed here, and some sections are positively masterful. read more

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The orchestral playing is excellent - sensitive, strong, or tender as needed. Griffiths conducts with all the sympathy and imagination he customarily shows for 19th Century music. The great art critic Clement Greenberg once wrote that the avant-garde imitates the processes of great art. Here the conservative Jadassohn imitates the processes of great music, with pleasurable results.
