'A winner in every department and an excellent introduction ...'

E T A Hoffmann, F Witt: Sinfonias - Kölner Akademie / Willens. © 2014 Deutschlandradio

This splendid disc brings together two composers who were roughly contemporaries of the giant Ludwig van Beethoven. I've heard some Hoffmann works before and was enthused by the E flat major symphony. It is a well-constructed work quite similar to those from Haydn's middle period...
