Ignaz Pleyel - Clarinet Concertos 1&2 + Sinfonia Concertante
CPO | Recorded: 2007 | Released: 2008
Dieter Klöcker, Sandra Arnold - Südwestdeutsches Kammerorchester Pforzheim / Sebastian Tewinkel

The resurgence of interest in music of the Baroque and Classical eras and the formation of now almost countless ensembles performing music from those periods on historical instruments have fostered renewed curiosity in the musical unknown. In some cases, the result of this has evolved into a situation where the details of the interpretation surpass the music being performed, but there is a more practical aspect to this evolution: the establishment of organizations whose purpose is to foster interest in the music of Haydn and Mozart's contemporaries, some of whom include Franz Hoffmeister, Antonio Rosetti, and Antonio Salieri.
The enthusiasm of these organizations has resulted in numerous scores, recordings, and concerts that further the cause of these societies. Ignaz Pleyel (1757-1831) is no exception to the trend. Music history has pronounced an indefinite judgment on this student of Haydn and colleague and friend of Mozart. While some of Pleyel's music is available on disc, we have yet to scratch the surface of his output, preferring to remember Pleyel by his later endeavors as a music publisher and manufacturer of pianos. Some posit that there was no room in the inn for the likes of Pleyel during the 19th century, and the unavoidable stylistic assignment of his work to the cubbyhole of Viennese classicism was the expected consequence, but others counter with the statement that the language of the greats did not always or accurately reflect the entire spectrum of musical life.

Francesco Feo - Passio Domini nostri Jesu Christi secundum Joannem (2009)
EAC RIP | FLAC + CUE + LOG | HQ Covers | 273mb
Passacaille | Recorded: 2009 | Released: 2009
La Divina Armonia - Lorenzo Ghielmi

This Passion is something special, and so is the booklet of 84 pages. It contains the complete lyrics, with translations in English, German, French and Italian. There are concise liner notes by Lorenzo Ghielmi. I had liked them to be more extended and include the remarks about the performance which I referred to above. Also in the booklet are beautiful pictures from the Sacro Monte sopra Varese. They are from the five 'sorrowful mysteries' from the Mysteries of the Rosario, depicting the Passion of Christ. They do go well with the music by Feo.
In short, this is an exemplary production which can only be strongly recommended.

Hyacinthe Jadin - String Trios Op.2
NCA | Recorded: 1999 | Released: 2000
Ensemble Les Adieux (on period instruments)

Hyacinthe Jadin (April 27, 1776, Versailles – September 27, 1800, Paris) was a French composer who came from a distinguished musical family. His uncle Georges Jadin was a composer in Versailles and Paris, along with his father Jean Jadin, who had also played bassoon for the French Royal Orchestra. He was one of five musically gifted brothers, the most famous of which was Louis-Emmanuel Jadin.
Jadin was a pupil of Nicolas Joseph Hüllmandel, who belonged to the famous École des Pianistes Parisiens (School of Pianists in Paris). Hüllmandel himself was a student of C.P.E. Bach, and was an excellent teacher who brought out Jadin's pianistic brilliance. At the age of 9, Jadin’s first composition, a Rondo for piano, was published in the Journal de Clavecin. By the age of thirteen, Jadin had premiered his first work with the Concert Spirituel.

Jan Dismas Zelenka - Missa Votiva, ZWV18 (2010)
Carus | Recorded: 2008 | Released: 2010
Kammerchor Stuttgart - Barockorchester Stuttgart (on period instruments) - Frieder Bernius

Extraordinarily well-written, prodigiously inventive, and relentlessly exciting--these aren't terms normally used to describe 18th-century Masses, but then there is nothing "normal" about this late work by Czech composer Jan Dismas Zelenka. Simply put, if you aren't acquainted with Zelenka (or if you've experienced a previous aversion to Masses), when you hear this piece--a substantial and powerful conception, from the first note of the Kyrie to the final chord of the Dona nobis pacem--you will wonder why this composer does not enjoy much greater esteem and popularity with performers, particularly alongside J.S. Bach (his contemporary) and Mozart.

Giovanni Battista Sammartini - The Late Symphonies Vol.1
EAC RIP | WAVPACK + CUE + LOG | HQ Scans | 285.15 MB
Brilliant Classics | Recorded: 2005 | Released: 2008
Accademia d’Arcadia (on period instruments) - Alessandra Rossi Lürig

These are the first recordings of late symphonies by G.B. Sammartini, ‘the father of the classical style’.
Although Sammartini laid the foundations of the symphony his works are virtually unknown. In Italy the Arcadia Foundation seeks to correct this. The Sammartini project set out to publish and catalogue the composer’s works. Another aim is to perform and record previously unpublished works, including the late symphonies. There are 68 symphonies attributed to Sammartini with certainty. Another 74 might be by him as well.
Stylish performances by the Accademia d’Arcadia on period instruments under Alessandra Rossi Lürig. These first recordings offer a most enjoyable and interesting insight into this unjustly neglected composer.

Bach, Zelenka and Lotti on one disc - that seems a little odd. Bach and Zelenka knew each other as they lived and worked not that far away from each other, in Leipzig and Dresden respectively. But what about Lotti?

Michael Haydn - Der Bassgeiger zu Wörgl
CPO | Recorded: 1997 & 1998 | Released: 1998
Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss - Johannes Goritzki

Michael Haydn, like his brother, was a chorister at St Stephen's in Vienna. Shortly after leaving the choir-school, he was appointed Kapellmeister at Großwardein and later, in 1762, at Salzburg. The latter office he held for forty-three years, during which time he wrote over 360 compositions for the church and much instrumental music. He was an intimate friend of Mozart, who had a high opinion of his work, and the teacher of Carl Maria von Weber.
Michael Haydn's sacred choral works are generally regarded as being his most important, including the Missa Hispanica (which he exchanged for his diploma at Stockholm), a Mass in D minor, a Lauda Sion, and a set of graduals, forty-two of which are reprinted in Anton Diabelli's Ecciesiaslicon. He was also a prolific composer of secular music, including forty symphonies, a number of concerti and chamber music including a string quintet in C major which was once thought to have been by his brother Joseph.
