Salieri's Successor

CPO 777104-2

Joseph Leopold Eybler

Symphony #1 in C Major
Symphony #2 in D Minor

L'Orchestre de Chambre de Genève/Michael Hofstetter
CPO 777104-2 57:49

The Viennese composer Eybler's two symphonies are thought to date from the late 1780s. They sound very much like Haydn: the first is in festive mode as in the Maria Theresa symphony while the second is a darker work. The orchestra uses authentic instruments which works to the music's benefit. There is nothing especially original here – just well-made, well-played, and enjoyable late Classical era music.
