The court at Mannheim, one of Europe's great eighteenth-century musical centres, provided myriad opportunities for creative development. Having absorbed the ideas of his teacher, Johann Stamitz, and of other luminaries, Beck wrote a series of symphonies notable for their dramatic contrasts, breadth and sweep, the progressive inclusion of woodwinds and a willingness to explore expressive intensity. Further Beck Symphonies may be heard on Naxos 8.553790, 8.554071, 8.570799 and 8.573248.

Franz Ignaz Beck,/b> composed symphonies from the 1750s, when the genre was in its infancy, and they have long been regarded as some of the most important early symphonic statements. Couched in the Mannheim school they can rank with the symphonies of Stamitz in the structural clearness and melodic ingenuity. This is the second in the Beck series - the first was on 8.573848.
