This is the way music should be recorded and heard. I am speaking of the surround SACD track. The mics are few in number and somewhat distant from the orchestra but perfectly placed to capture detail from the stage and ambiance from the hall. I was not very familiar with Louis Spohr's work. Born in 1784 and dying in 1859, he transcended the classical tradition from Beethoven, Schubert, and Mendelssohn through a young Brahms. He isn't as good a composer as those giants, but his music is well worth hearing, especially when it is played and recorded as as it is here. CPO is a label worthy of high praise.

Just want to add my 5 stars to the previous review, simply supporting its statement. I am impressed by how open and airy the sound is, especially considering that the competition (I have not heard the Hyperion series, mind you) lacks such refinement in sound and performance. The level of skill German orchestras (the "provincial") have attained in the last twenty years, is just amazing (though not suprinsing).

In such context, you can appreciate the true value of Spohr's genius...or lack thereof! After listening to much of his oeuvre I cannot consider him a memorable composer, but it is always more than pleasant to appreciate his composing skills: superb counterpoint, well structured, nicely orchestrated yet, without the ultimate spark of genius.

I should mention Spohr's Symphony No 6 'Historical: In the Style and Taste of Four Different Periods'. Well, you would not expect a composer to be "historically informed" in 1839, would you? Every movement represents a time in musical taste (1720, 1780, 1810, 1840). An attempt to being cool and show off by Spohr? Perhaps. You would not notice if you did not know. The first movement (1720) has a certain period flavor, but the most significant feature is (of course!) a fugue (the orchestration does not reveal anything pertaining to 1720). The second, hardly recalls Haydn-Mozart in my ears. The Scherzo is supposed to be beethovenian. The last movement a "modern" 1840 is supposed to be so perhaps because percussion is added. Well, nothing more than turkish spice with bombast. But...it's all pleasant and it brings a smile to your face and nice sounds to your ears. Good effort, Louis! All this is truly helped by the excellent sonics.

So, if you want to relax listening to classical-classical music, try this one. CPO production values, as always, are non pareil.

The surprise of the year. I urge you to listen to this music more than once in order for its ineffable beauty unfolds. I believe the listener will make a watershed discovery here. After listening to these, it is on to listen to the rest of the symphonies. All sadly overlooked today
