Description: All of these early Classical symphonies from Bohemian composers are claimed as world premiere recordings except for Myslivecek's. All of the new works but Bárta's are in four movements (he does away with a slow movement) and range from 9-18 minutes in length. This series is just the thing for collectors of what might be termed the adolescence of the symphony. Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra; Vojtech Spurny.
