This is a re-release of an SWRmusic-Bestseller, once again available. It contains Czerny's Symphony No.2 as well as the only available recording of the Symphony No.6. Both symphonies are charming, elegant works full of wit and grace, showing clearly that Czerny was not only a gifted composer of piano etudes. These works are performed here by the SWR Rundfunk- Orchester Kaiserslautern conducted by esteemed conductor Grzegorz Nowak. Grzegorz Nowak started his international career in 1984 as winner of the Ernest Ansermet Conducting Competition in Geneva. Since then he has been a guest conductor of famous orchestras in all parts of the world, and held positions with the German Chamber Orchestra, the National Opera in Warsaw, and more. Currently, he is the Music Director of the Metamorphosis Concert Foundation in Edmonton and the Sinfonia Helvetica.
