Richard Hol was born at Amsterdam in 1825, and completed four symphonies. This, his second, is in D minor. It was broadcast about twenty years ago.

I actually like them. They're fresh and optimistic, and should be played more often.

Don't forget that all four Hol Symphonies are available from Chandos with The Hague Residentie  Orchestra conducted by Matthias Bamert:
CHAN9796 - Symphonies 1 and 3
CHAN9952 - Symphonies 2 and 4

All worth a listen, and part of a sadly short-lived Chandos series of Dutch music, including Vermeulen and Dopper Symphonies - look them out!

Have them all, but since then CPO took over the helm and their Dutch series (Badings, Andriessen, Röntgen, Van Gilse, Wagenaar) is even finer.

I have the Chandos CDs, but frankly, I have found the music rather limited in inspiration.
