Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz; Griffiths, Kevin

Johann Evangelist Brandl was a versatile composer considered by his contemporaries to be ‘one of the most estimable composers of our time.’ His output covers every standard genre of his day except for keyboard music. Roughly 70 songs from his pen appeared in print; his church music was left unpublished; his Six String Quartets op. 17 bear a dedication to Joseph Haydn. Particularly striking in his chamber music is his scoring for both strings and winds, with special importance accorded to the bassoon. On this new release, the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz under the baton of Kevin Griffiths present an early work and a late work- the Symphony op. 12 in E flat major and the Symphony op. 25 in D major. The Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz is the largest and most important orchestra in this federal state. Based in Ludwigshafen, it is considered the leading symphony orchestra of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and offers a diverse repertoire ranging from the great symphonies to music theater and filmscores.
