Notes & Reviews:

The young Johann Friedrich Fasch quickly numbered among Telemann's admirers; even later he always remained true to his model Telemann. Fasch developed into a composer delighting very much in carefully elaborated innovation, above all in the field of instrumental music. This fact is impressively demonstrated by his compositional contributions to the overture suite, concerto, symphony, and sonata genres; it was also this progressiveness that enthused music scholars - (above all Hugo Riemann already in 1900) that has continued to fascinate musicians and musicologists through to the present.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2015
It's hard to fault the lively advocacy of the German period band Les Amis de Philippe... under their harpsichord director Ludger RTmy. Fasch's allegros, often in passepied rhythm, go with a lusty swing. The braying, hollering brass enjoy themselves hugely, while oboes and pealing high horns spar agreeably in the F major overture. Textures are clear and well balanced... [these overtures] contain plenty to tickle the ear.

The Observer, 26th July 2015
[Fasch] made the overture symphony his own, melding the French-style overture with the Italian sinfonia, producing three-movement symphonies for his Dresden audience that quest beyond his contemporaries into a new, richly orchestrated and structurally daring territory, nosing towards classical style...Pleasingly elegant playing makes this an enjoyable disc.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
Ludger Remy has long shown a fascination with Fasch. In 2008 he produced for the CPO label (777 424: M/J 2009) a Fasch program offering six works that survey the different categories of his orchestral writing. That included two of the Overture-Symphonies, in F and A. Now he brings us, after an interval, five more of these works - two in D, two in G, and one in F. They are played here with period- style spirit and affection. So this is a release what will add to the momentum of Fasch's important historical stature, while also allowing for some colorful and most enjoyable listening.
