This second volume of world premiere recordings follows Vol.1 (8574227) released in April 2021. The scores for both recordings are the result of exhaustive research amongst numerous European archives by top Wranitzky scholar Daniel Bernhardsson. Pizzicato gave Vol.1 four stars, writing: ‘The orchestra’s playing is fresh and spirited, with plenty of melodic immediacy and a charmingly elegant lightness.’
Conductor Marek Štilec is a specialist in 18th-century music and Czech composers in particular. His five volumes of orchestral works by Zdeněk Fibich have been widely acclaimed, with one Fanfare reviewer suggesting that ‘for those looking to expand their collections of late 19th-century, very Romantic, very dramatic, and very beautiful symphonic and orchestral works, here is the way to do it. Very strongly recommended.’
Also recorded with the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra Pardubice, his three volumes of symphonies by Leopold Koželuch have been warmly welcomed for their ‘excellent, enthusiastic, and sympathetic’ performances in the American Record Guide.
