David's Review Corner, October 2013

By the time of his death in 1812, aged 58, the musical world had turned to Mozart and Beethoven, the vast output of Franz Anton Hoffmeister all but forgotten. It has been much due to the Swiss flautist, Bruno Meier, that they have resurfaced in the new editions that he has created. Many were never put to print in the composer’s lifetime, though that is not the case with the present disc. So we have an opening movement of the Sixteenth that has a readily memorable theme, followed by an Adagio that any competent kapellmeister could put together on a wet Monday afternoon. Then in the following concerto we have the most charming Rondo in its theme and variations format, the theme as perky as anything that came from the young Haydn. Loving accounts, the playing of the Prague Chamber Orchestra neat and perfectly balanced. Very good sound and we are promised twenty more concertos. © David’s Review Corner
