Notes & Reviews:

The latest offering in Alto's celebrated and long-running series Baroque Bohemia & Beyond features symphonies by the Bohemian composers Vojtech Jirovec and Franz Christoph Neubauer, as well as the Vienna-born Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf who spent the bulk of his productive years in the court of the Prince-Bishop of Breslau (Wroclaw) in Silesia.

MusicWeb International
A now long-running series revealing just how full of depth is the wellspring of the Bohemian musical diaspora. If the names Schimpke, Gassmann and Jirovec [composers represented on ALC 1201, Vol. VI] mean nothing to you, then you are certainly not alone. But each composer offers a revealing sidelight on both his heritage and his milieu, as reflected in these three orchestral works. These works, all by lesser known emigre composers, all offer up delightful surprises and noteworthy features. They're played with grace and warmth. And they are well worth a listen.
