Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Combine Schubert's gift of melody with Beethoven's flair for drama, and you have the music of their respected friend and colleague -- the Bohemian composer Jan Václav Hugo Vorísek. Unlike his better-known contemporaries, Vorísek (pronounced VORH-zheh-shek) composed few large-scale works in his tragically short lifetime (1791-1825), but what gems they are. His exquisite Mass in B-flat Major is a perfectly proportioned Classical masterpiece in the tradition of the great masses of Haydn and Mozart. Surprisingly, this new CD is the only readily available recording. Vorísek's only symphony, the Symphony in D Major, is "a work of impressive confidence and command, firmly constructed and colourfully scored" (Gramophone). If you love the great Viennese classicists, you'll adore Vorísek.
