Notes & Reviews:

"Matthias Bamert continues his admirable Contemporaries of Mozart series with this issue devoted to the relatively unknown Christian Cannabich (1731-98). Cannabich became famous as the second conductor of the Mannheim Orchestra after the death of Johann Stamitz. The Mannheim Orchestra was widely regarded as the best trained and disciplined in all Europe. He had been born the son of a Mannheim flautist, and his talents were early recognized by the Elector himself who sent him to study in Rome. When he returned he made Mannheim his residence, though he traveled widely, particularly to Paris, where he was known as a symphonist. He and most of the Mannheim musicians moved to Munich in 1778 when the Elector became Elector of Bavaria. Four of the symphonies are in three-movement form but one has four movements. Three of the three-movement works are first recordings (Symphony in A, 57 in E-flat, and 22 in C). They aren't as fine as the later Haydn and Mozart works, but they are quite polished and attractive. Chandos offers a superb recording that is well balanced and well spread. Bamert conducts superbly. The notes are first class." -ARG

BBC Music Magazine
It's refreshing these days to hear music of this kind played by a modern instrument orchestra, Matthias Bamert and the London Mozart Players do it proud. Chandos' recording is exemplary.
