FRANÇOIS-JOSEPH GOSSEC (1734-1829): 6 Symphonies, Op. 4.
Catalogue Number: 08V025
Reference: 555 263-2
Description: These symphonies appeared in print around 1758. When compared with Gossec’s first set from 1756, they offer considerable innovations even in purely formal matters: they have four movements, and oboes and/or horns have been added to the instrumentation used in op. III, which was exclusively for strings. In addition, there are stylistic elements originating in the Mannheim School, particularly attention-grabbing initial displays.
