Sinfonie Concertanti, o sia Quintetti per due Violini, due Viole, e Basso

Uralsk Philharmonic Orchestra, orchestra
Gary Brain, conductor

Josef Mysliveček (1737–81) – born in Prague, based in Italy – was one of the chief architects of the ‘high’ Classical style that emerged in Europe around 1770, and one of the most important musical influences on the young Mozart. The works on this CD, composed in the mid-1760s, were published to be performed as string symphonies, as here, or as quintets for two violins, two violas and cello, the earliest such works ever to appear in print. Their grace, passion and tenderness help explain why Mozart so admired Mysliveček’s operas and instrumental music.

Bright Performances

patric Standford Music & Vision 1st March 2008

The six brief string symphonies by Josef Myslivecek, “il divino boemo,” so admired by Mozart and his contemporaries, are works of real substance that would grace any concert season, and the orchestra in Kazakhstan may counter the foolish impression of that country created by that irritatingly popular movie.
