Despite the Requiem for Mozart album title, the main attraction here is a work begun as early as 1776 and expanded and repurposed several times, including, in early 1792, a memorial service for Mozart in the city where he achieved some of his greatest triumphs. Those who argue for the historical authenticity of chamber-sized performances of Classical-era choral works should note the total forces of 120. Actually, it is interesting to contemplate what might have happened if the work had really been written as a requiem for Mozart, perhaps even with Mozart's own grim Requiem in D minor torso, K. 626, in mind. As the work stands now, it's an illustration of the breezy quality of so much sacred music of the late 18th century.

Imitating Haydn symphonies became a European speciality in the last three decades of the 18th century. Literally hundreds were written, by composers from Carlos Baguer in Catalonia to Joseph Martin Kraus in Sweden. Dozens were published under Haydn’s name. It was no wonder that even a cultivated listener in Paris (the centre of the music publishing world at that time) would have found it difficult in 1790 to define Haydn’s symphonic style. Antonio Rosetti (born Franz Anton Rösler in German-speaking Bohemia – it was better business to sport an Italian name) lived from c1750 to 1792 and began to write popular and successful neo-Haydn symphonies in about 1773, when he entered the service of the Prince of Oettingen-Wallerstein in Germany. He remained there until 1789, when he became Kapellmeister to the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

This MDG Gold disc Orchestral Works, Vol. 2 brings four pieces of Antonio Rosetti (or, if you prefer, Antonín Rösler) to the CD catalog that have never been recorded. This isn't much of a stretch of the imagination, as Rosetti's orchestral output is enormous; the contents of this disc include only three out of his 44 symphonies and a single flute concerto out of the 12 composed by Rosetti. Most of this music is neglected, so the automatic question that comes up is whether there is actually something to look forward to in further investigating Rosetti, or if he is to remain one of those marginal figures in the classical era that only scholars seem to know or care about.

Antonio Rosetti, who was almost always mentioned in the same breath as Mozart and Haydn by his contemporaries, composed over 40 symphonies, about six dozen solo concertos and chamber music and a considerable number of sacred vocal works. Ranked amongst his greatest achievements in the latter genre are the large-scale passion oratorio "Jesus in Gethsemane" and the "Hallelujah" cantata. Both show the virtuoso mastery of a whole array of musical techniques. Thanks to their melodic ingenuity, sophisticated harmony, a distinctive sense of proportion and the, as always, accomplished manipulation of orchestral tones, both of these late works are counted among Rosetti's most meaningful creations. There is no better conductor for this disc of Rosseti masterpieces than Johannes Moesus who is president of the International Rosetti Society.

Antonio Rossetti (ca. 1750 - 1792) was born Franz Anton Rossler in Bohemia. Like many other central European composers with operatic ambitions (Johann Stich, Johann Christian Bach, and even Mozart), he Italianized his Christian and surnames, and studied the craft of masters such as Pergolesi, Vivaldi, Geminiani, Albinoni. Rossetti's internalization of the fluent Italian style was as thorough-going as Giovanni Cristiano Bach's before him, but Rossetti was able to personalize it, to give it his stamp, in small demonstrations of formal and textural originality.

The Bohemian born composer Antonio Rosetti was one of the most famous musicians and composers of his day. His elegant melodic writing, inventiveness and compositional refinement were frequently the reason to compare his works to those of Mozart and Haydn. These world premiere recordings by the ensemble Compagnia di Punto reveal the last hidden treasures within his multi-facetted and fascinating symphonic and concert repertoire.
