About

This recording presents two symphonies “on the theme of nature”. Valid though this expression is, it nevertheless calls for quotation marks. Far from being a prefiguration of Beethoven’s famous Pastoral, Justin Heinrich Knecht’s Symphony ‘Portrait musical de la nature’ represented a highly convincing attempt by its composer to extricate himself from programme music. It is exciting to hear these two works recorded together for the first time by the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin directed by its concertmaster, Bernhard Forck.
