Buntrock, Barbara; Riet, Gaby Pas-van; Hotz, Andreas; Osnabruck Symphony Orchestra

When the Osnabrück Symphony Orchestra goes to the studio, it is working on all the key features. This was the case with the symphonies of Joseph Bohuslav Foerster, and so it is with the latest product: Two viola and a flute concerto by Osnabrück composer Christian Westerhoff are immortalized. The orchestra thus ends with a recording of a symphony, a clarinet and a double concerto by Westerhoff, which has been recorded by Hermann Bäumer. Westerhoff was born in 1763, and was a real contendor of his time: no Mozart, no Haydn, no Beethoven, but certainly a composer who composed serious music. The viola concertos No. 1 in G major and No. 3 in C major sound lively and fresh - it is a pleasure to listen to the orchestra under Andreas Hotz. The two soloists have also played a decisive role in this: Barbara Buntrock plays the Solopart in the viola concertos, and the same applies to Gaby Pas-Van Riet as a soloist in the Flötenkonzert.
