Format: Audio CD
Carlos Baguer is a totally unknown composer for the musical world, except for iberian musicologists and a few select group of music lovers.

Carlos Baguer was born in Barcelona (Catalonia) in 1738. He started his musical education with his uncle Francesco Mariner organist of the Barcelona Cathedral and Carlos replaced him in 1786; the same year Baguer is named titular organist of the Cathedral, a post he held until his death in 1808. Considered one of the most important musical figures in the Iberian Peninsula at the time, Baguer had a special reputation for great interpretations and improvisations on the organ, however, he took part in numerous competitions for other Spanish Cathedrals, always with negative results.

The nineteen symphonies Baguer composed made him the principal symphonist of the vast Spanish Empire in the clasical era, but his output covered practically all the musical genres of his day: music for keyboard instruments, both in the old style (fugues, partitas and pasos) and the modern (sonatas, minuets, contradanses,etc.) liturgical music and oratorios for one or two choirs, soloists and orchestra, a collection of duos and flutes, and an opera " La Princesa Filosofa " ( "The Philosopher Princess " ).

The symphonies of Franz Joseph Haydn became known in Spain around 1780's and many of Baguer's symphonies are clearly under his influence. So, these congenial symphonies are stepped in central european models, not iberian. Though Carlos Baguer was received into Holy Orders, he renounced religious status at around the turn of the XIX Century and his composition showed more explicit interest in orchestral than religious music.

This is a fascinating and enjoyable disc in many ways.

I have been purchasing and listening to as many of the wonderful Chandos Contemporaries of Mozart series as I can afford and find the time to listen to, and this disc lives up to expectations. I agree with an earlier reviewer that Baguer may be more favorably compared to Haydn than to Mozart, which to my mind is definitely a good thing. The music is clever, witty, and inventive, not just pretty or emotional as Mozart often can be. The performances and recording quality are of course up to the usual Chandos standards.If you're exploring less well known composers of early classical music, this disc, and probably the entire Chandos series are must haves.

Periodically Carlos Baguer's music is played on our classical music station, and when I first heard it, I just had to have it. No disappointment here. Very nice addition to my collection.
