    Just Plain Good

    Spohr's music is just plain good. He puts early romanticism in a bright light. His accomplishment is comparable to what Cherubini does for the transition from neoclassicism to romanticism in his operas. Spohr's own operas Faust and Jessonda are top-flight despite his failure to deliver anything exotic for the East Indian setting of Jessonda. How did the music of these two composers ever fall into neglect? I prefer Cherubini's Coronation Mass to Beethoven's overwrought Missa Solemnis ten to one although Beethoven's 9th symphony from the same period is one of the greatest of all compositions. Spohr's Violin Concerto No. 7 in E minor ranks with the best of its genre from the 19th century and should at least be compared with the famous one by Mendelssohn in the same key. Spohr's first movement is as solid an instrumental composition as I can hope to hear. The slow movement is a model of romantic lyricism and the finale is as entertaining as these light movements ever are. Nishizaki's performance strikes me as impeccable but I leave performances to others. What I hear is the composers' works.
