Release Date: November 2012 Originally recorded in 2012. Composer 1786-1826 Carl Maria von Weber. They are joined on this recording by the bassoonist Karen Geoghegan. Weber wrote the waltz Aufforderung zum Tanze Invitation to the Dance in 1819, around the time when he was also working on the opera Der Freischütz. The performances are pretty astringent, Juanjo Mena persuading the BBC Philharmonic to play as if they were a period orchestra, with wiry lean string tone and rasping woodwind.

In July 2010, the orchestra announced the appointment of Juanjo Mena as its. This 2012 album by Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic presents the symphonies with the seriously overlooked Bassoon Concerto, played with charm and wit by Karen Geoghegan, and the Berlioz arrangement of Invitation to the Dance. This is an attractive album that will please fans of early Romantic music, and go a long way toward establishing these forgotten symphonies in the standard repertoire. Orchestral Works.
