Naxos has previously released recordings of Richter’s Grandes Symphonies (1744) Nos. 1–6 (Set 1) (Helsinki Baroque, Hakkinen) on 8.557818—‘Under Aapo Hakkinen, the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra demonstrates that it is the equal of the finest European period-instrument bands.’ (3 STARS, The Sunday Times)—and Grandes Symphonies (1744), Nos. 7–12 (Set 2) (Helsinki Baroque, Hakkinen) on 8.570597—‘if you enjoyed the previous release in this series (Naxos 8.557818), you’ll certainly want to buy its continuation as well. If you haven’t tried either, but like music that stands on the cusp between the Baroque and early Classical periods, drawing in unpredictable fashion from both, look no further.’ (Fanfare).
