Symphony #2, Op. 40 (1803)
Symphony #4, Op. 102 (undated)
London Mozart Players/Matthias Bamert
Chandos CHAN9275 57:38
This is one of Chandos' excellent Contemporaries of Mozart series, although the music sounds more like Haydn. Krommer, a Czech who worked in various European countries, seems to have been a very cheerful soul and these two symphonies abound with stylish playing and good humor. Quite a lot of Krommer has been recorded, including some delightful wind pieces and concertos for clarinet for oboe.
