Prague Sinfonia / Christian Benda

Although Schubert’s dream of success as a composer for the stage largely eluded him, some of his theatrical music was performed during his lifetime. His overtures for Georg von Hofmann’s Die Zwillingsbrüder and for Die Zauberharfe - later transferred to Rosamunde, D. 644 - sadly won little praise, though the Overture in the Italian Style, D590 was appreciated for its ‘youthful fire’, and the Overture in E minor, D. 648 was heard in 1821.

“An excellent project is launched with this disc. In keeping with Naxos' policy of exploring the byways of music, nine delightful little overtures come to light…. they brim over with catchy melodies, and the structure and orchestration are really excellent. Christian Benda, scion of the illustrious Bohemian family of musicians, digs into these scores with gusto and the Prague Sinfonia rewards the listener with enthusiastic response and great sound.” The New Recordings
