Die Kölner Akademie, Michael Alexander Willens
During the first half of the nineteenth century Sigismund von Neukomm was one of Europe’s most highly regarded composers. Although he maintained an intimate artistic friendship with Joseph Haydn until the older composer’s death, he was a composer with a mind of his own and full of originality. This fact is very convincingly demonstrated by his four orchestral fantasies presented here which he termed an ‘Essay in a New Genre’. Here we encounter Sturm und Drang and anticipations of romanticism in their purest form.
 

 "... The performances of the Symphony and the Fantasy in D minor show just how superbWillens and the Cologne Academy are... The orchestra’s timbre is lean rather than plush. Their playing is utterly alert, pungent, and highly rhythmic, with warm lovely quiet ections and an huge breadth of expression. And superb engineering captures every dynamic level with richness and balance..."

Gil French - American Record Guide - March/April 2013


"Until now, Neukomm has just been a name I’ve seen in music history textbooks, primarily in conjunction with haydn, but this typically enterprising release from Willens’ Kölner Akademie and CPO reveals an interesting composer ... they [Die Kölner Akademie] make a tremendous sound, and i hope both the orchestra and the recording company will further explore his output."

Brian Clark - Early Music Review (No 151) - December 2012
