Notes & Reviews:
The clarinetist Erich Hoeprich's ensemble Nachtmusique draws its members from the wind section of the Orchestra of the 18th Century (directed, until his death in August 2014, by Frans Bru¨ggen). Quite probably the leading specialists today in Harmoniemusik - the genre so fashionable in Vienna and its surrounding area as the 18th c. turned into the nineteenth - these musicians, here operating as a sextet and playing delightfully sounding original instruments, give us an entire disc devoted to the Bohemian composer Franz Krommer (1759-1831), whose music is full of vibrancy and humor.
