Mozart’s friend Franz Xaver Dussek (in whose summer villa he completed Don Giovanni) was a pianist, celebrated teacher and the leading composer of instrumental music in Prague. Like his compatriot Wanhal, Dussek completed his musical training in Vienna and, unsurprisingly, his works reflect the strong influence of composers such as Hofmann, Haydn and Dittersdorf. Dussek’s symphonies, most of which appear to have been composed in the 1760s and 1770s, are works of great charm and vivacity, cleverly orchestrated and full of striking melodic ideas as this recording amply demonstrates.

"... If you are looking for enjoyable, little-known well-played classical music, this could be precisely what you are looking for - high quality need not break the bank."

Brian Clarke - Early Music Review - October 2013


 "...The performances are fine though sometimes a little raw-sounding, and the continuo player (who performs on a fortepiano) is inventive and delightful to hear."

Rob Haskins - American Record Guide - November/December 2012

Andreas Friesenhagen - Fono Forum - December 2012


                   ’Gramophone Choice’

"Small ensemble, 18-strong, big music-making; modest scoring - strings with pairs of oboes and horns - but a wide-ranging imagination from Franz Xaver Dusek (1731-99), all topped by wide-raning musicianship from Aapo Häkkinen... Häkkinen directs from a fortepiano, appropiatelyso... Excellent."

Nalen Anthoni - Gramophone magazine - Awards Issue - 2012


"Dussek’s symphonies from the 1760’s and 1770’s are works of great charm and vivacity, cleverly orchestrated and full of striking melodic ideas as this recording amply demonstrates."

"... cleverly scored, tuneful ..."

"The performances by the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra under Häkkinen are what might be termed “generic period instrument,” but of high quality. The wind players—oboes, horns, and bassoon—have an attractive timbre and maintain good intonation throughout. The strings are typically dry and thin-toned, but rhythmically precise and alert ...Certainly the music is of fine enough quality that it should appeal to anyone who enjoys the products of the First Viennese School. And who doesn’t? Excellent sonics flatter the players, and the decision not to use an obtrusive harpsichord continuo was very smart ... this is a very recommendable release."

David Hurwitz - ClassicsToday.com, July 2012
