Wrongly Neglected Composer
Those recordings are superb. From the first symphony to the last, this neglected romantic repertoire is very well presented here. Urs Schneider and the Slovak State Philharmonic along with Samuel Friedmann and the Rhenish Philharmonic are brilliant. They offer very dynamic performances and the sound recording by Marco Polo is a pure delight. Joachim's orchestral writing will remind you mainly of Mendelssohn, but his own musical personality is very present.

This boxed set offers many hours of elegant, well written and well recorded romantic symphonic works.more....
