Carl Philip Stamitz’s Viola Concerto in D major from the Classical era’s Mannheim School remains part of the instrument’s core repertory. Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No.4 (“Romantic”) is by far the most performed and popular among the composer’s oeuvre. Together, these two works reveal the breadth and depth of the Austro-German tradition in terms of style, structure, form and presentation. They are true treasures for any music lover.
