Notes & Reviews:

"...Beck was a close contemporary of Haydn (two years younger, both died in the same year), but his symphonies are usually referred to as being pre-Classical, while Haydn's music forms one of the cornerstones of the Classical style... Their distinctive thematic materials, bold harmonic progressions, and polished orchestrations mark a step forward in the development of the symphony... Tempos invariably feel appropriate, the textures are always clarified, and the dynamic contrasts are well judged... the recorded sound is immediate and transparent. This disc can be recommended without hesitation to those interested in the development of the symphony." -Fanfare
