While his early compositional style was predominantly influenced by Telemann, Fasch developed his compositions in extraordinarily innovative directions. This disc, devoted to his original concept of the Overture Suite (a combination of the French overture and Italian sinfonia forms) exemplifies this, while illustrating the musical ideals of the late baroque period.

Gramophone Magazine

September 2015

“It's hard to fault the lively advocacy of the German period band Les Amis de Philippe…under their harpsichord director Ludger Rémy. Fasch's allegros, often in passepied rhythm, go with a lusty swing. The braying, hollering brass enjoy themselves hugely, while oboes and pealing high horns spar agreeably in the F major overture. Textures are clear and well balanced…[these overtures] contain plenty to tickle the ear.”

The Observer

26th July 2015

***

“[Fasch] made the overture symphony his own, melding the French-style overture with the Italian sinfonia, producing three-movement symphonies for his Dresden audience that quest beyond his contemporaries into a new, richly orchestrated and structurally daring territory, nosing towards classical style...Pleasingly elegant playing makes this an enjoyable disc.”
