About

The second volume in a ground-breaking seven-part series, The Mozartists and director Ian Page’s ‘Sturm und Drang’ recordings incorporate iconic compositions by Mozart, Gluck and, above all, Joseph Haydn but it also includes largely forgotten or neglected works by less familiar names.

All of the music featured on this second recording was composed between 1765 and 1770, with three turbulent minor-key symphonies alternating with sacred and operatic arias.

The ‘Sturm und Drang’ movement swept through all art forms in between the early 1760s and 1780s, with the general objective to frighten and perturb through the use of wildly subjective and emotional means of expression, evoking groundbreaking extremes of passion and sentimentality.

Reviews

Page and his players once again demonstrate their total identification with this music in playing of dizzying drive and accuracy. ... Once again, high artistry conspires with scholarship and strength of concept to create a programme that scintillates from start to finish.  David Threasher
