Notes & Reviews:

"These symphonies were written as the first part of a group of 12 in 1740. They are very early examples of the form... The quick movements have a driving intensity and expressive harmonies that give way to unexpected melodic twists. They are firmly rooted in the baroque style, which I normally don't much care for, but they do have many interesting effects. The Helsinki Baroque Orchestra plays their period instruments splendidly. The recording is close and clear." -American Record Guide
