Johann Baptist Vanhal was one of Haydn's most important contemporaries. His symphonies in particular were widely admired throughout Europe, with music historian Dr. Charles Burney reporting that Vanhal's symphonies were known in England before those of Haydn. The finely wrought works in this recording include the Symphony in F minor, considered one of his best in this genre, and the Symphony in C which was highly popular in it's day. All of these works illustrate Vanhal's sophisticated mastery of musical structure, imaginative handling of the orchestra, and a profusion of memorable themes.
