For a composer so long neglected, Paul Wranitzky has the good fortune to receive recorded attention twice recently for his entertaining Op. 31 symphony, fortunately with one other that does not duplicate Bamert's fine recording (of 3 of Wranitzky's symphonies altogether) for the pairing. The comments to make on this recording are quite similar to those for Bamert's Chandos CD, the more so since the op. 31 symphony is bound to be most buyer's focus of attention.

This compact disc of two of Paul Wranitzky's symphonies, again in vigourous and musically shapely performances, is one that most music lovers would obtain mainly due to its inclusion of a bit of French Revolutionary lore, a fun if leightweight trifle (yet relatively lengthy at 30 1/2 minutes) called, in one way to translate the title from French to English, "Grand Characteristic Symphony for the Peace of the French Republic" (op. 31). The work is not really a symphony at all in construction, but rather nine pieces linked within four movements which musically depict aspects of the French Revolution, the struggles and a royal tragedy to which it gave rise, concluding with what Wranitzky regards as its peaceful aftermath.

I suspect that the entire work amounts to almost a sort of pot-pourri (medley) or quodlibet, though not quite technically either of these forms, for I recognised lots of musical quotes. Those from works by Luigi Cherubini abound in the first movement titled "The Revolution", which is hardly surprising, since Cherubini arguably was the most important and artistically significant of all composers linked closely to the French Revolution.

Never heard anything by this composer. Being a fan of all things SACD this was a real find. Beautifully recorded and nicely preformed this is worth acquiring for your library. For my taste this music falls into something more progressive that Haydn or Mozart. Very interesting music and should note disappoint. The German CPO label is at the forefront of the SACD movement and presents a large body of well recorded SACD's by obscure composers. Keep an eye out for their releases.
