Spohr: Symphonies Nos. 7 & 9

“The performances, like the pieces themselves, are a shade laid-back, but their lack of urgency never seriously detracts from the attractive qualities of this music.” --BBC Music Magazine, May 2012 ****

“[Shelley] is at his most sympathetic in Autumn, at home in its atmosphere of hunting and social camaraderie” --Gramophone Magazine, May 2012


“The music itself is pleasant enough, if unremarkable, sometimes echoing Beethoven (the Pastoral Symphony especially in the Ninth), and showing affinities with Mendelssohn and Schumann elsewhere; the performances are first rate, and the solo horn playing is glorious.” --The Guardian, 1st March 2012 ***
