Review By Classic CD,

"The performance by the Queensland Philharmonic under John Georgiadis has splendid energy and polish. The music springs vividly to life in the most captivating manner and the recording is in the demonstration class"

Review By WalesOnline,

"The Queensland forces playing is reliable and Georgiadis demonstrates impressive control and an affection for the music"

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Weber wrote his two Symphonies in the same year (1807) and, though both are in C major, each has its own individuality. The witty orchestration and operatic character of the writing are splendidly caught in these sparkling Queensland performances, while in the slow movements the orchestral soloist relish their solos, for all the world like vocal cantilenas. The Naxos recording is in the demonstration class, and the disc is made the more attractive for the inclusion of orchestral excerpts from two little-known operas and incidental music from Turandot. The Entr’acte from the incomplete Die drei Pintos was put together by Mahler from Weber’s sketches.
