Notes & Reviews:

"The four symphonies collected here are compact, polished creations that introduce and develop their material with great facility and never outstay their welcome. Outer movements are brisk, tuneful and jolly; andantes and minuets are charming... Kevin Mallon and his Toronto band play Pichl's symphonies with style and enthusiasm. Their committed advocacy of rarely heard music is one of the major selling points of a growing number of Naxos discs, and this one is no exception. For the record, their instruments are modern, but their performance style is period-sensitive, with minimal vibrato from the strings and hard sticks for the timpani. There is no harpsichord continuo; none is necessary. The recorded sound is excellent and Allan Badley's liner notes provide helpful biographical information, though a little more detail on the music itself would have been welcome. This well filled and attractively priced disc can be warmly recommended to anyone looking to explore the Classical era beyond Haydn and Mozart." -MusicWeb
