4 AV 5 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I GÖTEBORGS-POSTEN

"Carl Maria von Weber, Friskyttens skapare, är ett av den tyska romantikens verkliga genier. Som få andra klingar hans verk av själva idén om skogslandskapet, med hornsignalerna som berättar om det akustiska rummets vidsträckthet. Så varför spelas inte denna frihetsdoftande musik oftare? På denna eminenta inspelning framför Tapiola Sinfonietta under dirigenten Jean-Jacques kantorow två av Webers symfonier, komponerande 1807-08, och dessutom två verk för fagott och orkester från ungefär samma tid, med Jaakko Luoma som solist. Så fräscht det låter, så utforskande och lyssnande, och just så blir musikens rum ett naturens rum med wienklassicismens melodier vandrande ut i det fria."
(Göteborgs-Posten)

The Tapiola Sinfonietta has recorded a number of highly acclaimed discs for BIS spanning a repertoire from Rautavaara, Pärt and Shostakovich to Saint-Saëns and Mozart. On one of the orchestra's most recent releases, under conductor Jean-Jacques Kantorow, the programme was centred on the clarinet concertos by Carl Maria von Weber, with Martin Fröst as soloist. The orchestra's contribution to the much-praised result was noticed by the reviewers, as witness the following description on website classicstoday.com: 'perfect accompaniments: swift, sensitive, texturally transparent, and rhythmically snappy'. On the present disc Tapiola Sinfonietta and Kantorow revisit Weber, again focussing on works by the young composer, from before the fame that the opera Der Freischütz would bring. The two symphonies - the only works in the genre that Weber composed - were written in the space of six weeks around New Year 1808, while Weber were staying at the court of the Count of Württemberg-Öls in Carlsruhe (nowadays Pokój in Poland). Their scoring reflects the forces available in the Count's orchestra: apart from strings and timpani Weber could call upon a flute, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns and two trumpets. We may assume that the wind players were of exceptional quality, as these works offer them plenty of opportunities to show off. The symphonies also bear witness to the period of transition from classicism to romanticism, particularly in terms of orchestral colour. The two works for bassoon and orchestra included on the disc were composed a few years later, specifically for Georg Friedrich Brandt, bassoonist in the Munich Court Orchestra. They are here performed by Jaakko Luoma, the principal bassonist of the Tapiola Sinfonietta, who gives them their full measure of both flamboyant virtuosity and lyric songfulness .
