About

The court at Mannheim, one of Europe’s great eighteenth-century musical centres, provided myriad opportunities for creative development. Having absorbed the ideas of his teacher, Johann Stamitz, and of other luminaries, Franz Ignaz Beck wrote a series of symphonies notable for their dramatic contrasts, breadth and sweep, the progressive inclusion of woodwinds and a willingness to explore expressive intensity.

Beck composed symphonies from the 1750s, when the genre was in its infancy, and they have long been regarded as some of the most important early symphonic statements. This is the second in the Beck series.
