26 of 27 people found the following review helpful By Daniel G. Berk on October 12, 2000
Format: Audio CD
These symphonies represent what may well be the composing apex of an unjustly neglected composer. Abel appears to have been a student of Johann Sebastian Bach, and years later, when Bach's youngest son, Johann Christian, moved to London, he and Abel shared a house from 1765 to 1781.
Abel was far more respected during his lifetime than the obscurity into which he has since fallen would indicate. These are good works, well worthy of consideration, and this CD will certainly reward its listener.

Abel was one of the invetors of the symphonic form. When we look back on his accomplishments we have centuries of syphonies with which to compare Abel. His symphonies are short at under ten minutes each, but they are packed full of inventiveness. Each movement is creative and full of energy. The performance by Cantilena cannot be beat. I would never have heard of Abel had in not been for Clssical net's recommendation. Thanks

I have wanted a set of Abel's symphonies for years. When I saw this on Amazon, at a very reasonable price, I bought it. As usual, Amazon had it to me in two days with my Prime. It's a nice set of music.

This is a beautiful collection of the best of Abel, who is often sadly overlooked. If you love Mozart and Beethoven, you will love Carl Friedrich Abel, as well.
