In a declining market for physical CDs, I sometimes wonder why certain composers are put on disc by record companies. Writing during the same period, the more interesting of these two composers is Danzi (1763-1826), whose music is interestingly orchestrated and flows freely. The only word I can think of to describe the work of Fesca (1789-1826) is ‘worthy’. Fesca has a penchant for writing vocal fugues that are efficiently worked out but lack inspiration. The performances are good from both choir and orchestra, and there is an excellent group of soloists who enhance the whole proceedings.
