Dussek: Four Symphonies
Dussek: Sinfonia in G major (9:54)
Helsinki Baroque Orchestra / Aapo Häkkinen
Franz Xaver Dussek was a pianist, celebrated teacher and the leading composer of instrumental music in Prague. He completed his musical training in Vienna, and his works reflect the strong influence of composers such as Haydn and Dittersdorf. Dussek’s symphonies from the 1760s and 1770s are works of great charm and vivacity, cleverly orchestrated and full of striking melodic ideas as this recording amply demonstrates.
