CDS 1046-2 Norbert Burgmüller (1810-1836): Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 2; Hugo Staehle (1826-1848): Symphony No. 1 in C minor. Orchester des Staatstheaters Kassel conducted by Marc Piollet.
Two composers from Kassel. Both died young - which was especially tragic in the case of Burgmüller, whose talented and interesting musical style (and fate) bring to mind Franz Schubert. Both symphonies are solid, well-formed works that resemble the late music of Schubert.
"Piollet has the measure of these works and his orchestra plays with real engagement - witness the scherzo of the Staehle in which bubbling urgency meets a carefully graded approach to loud and quiet." - MusicWeb
