About this Recording

BECK, F.I.: Symphonies, Op. 4, Nos. 1-3 and Op. 3, No. 6 (Czech Chamber Philharmonic, Pardubice, Štilec)

Beck’s symphonies have long been regarded as among the most striking works of their kind from the mid-18th century. Remarkable for their dramatic flair, rich harmonic language and fluid, inventive part writing, the symphonies Opp. 3 and 4 (published in 1762 and 1766 respectively) display a rare level of compositional finish that elevates them above all but the very greatest symphonies of their time. Further Beck symphonies may be heard on Naxos 8.553790 and 8.570799.
