I returned to Spohr after listening to symphonies by "minor" and unknown early-romantic composers, like Johann Wihelm Wilms (1772-1847) or Friedrich Ernst Fesca (1789-1826): see my reviews of Johann Wilhelm Wilms: Symphonien Nos. 6 & 7, Anthony Halstead conducts Johann Wilhelm Wilms, Friedrich Ernst Fesca: Symphonies 2 & 3; Cantemire Overture. While hearing what linked their symphonies to the earlier, classical style, I also enjoyed very much the pathway traced in them to the darker hues of an early-romantic style. What they perhaps lacked, when compared those recognized as the major early-romantic composers - Schubert, Weber, Mendelssohn and Schumann - was a uniquely distinctive personality, an invention in melody or orchestral color that would make you immediately recognize who the composer was. And when their music sounded like it lacked personality, I used the Spohr comparison, associating the latter to the "run-of-the-mill" of the early romantic style. But for fear of being unfair to Spohr I decided to check for sure.

My own personal clichés weren't borne out by Spohr's Second symphony from 1820 (see my review of LACHNER: Symphony No. 1 / SPOHR: Symphony No. 2).
