Another fine symphony by Spohr. People will say,it's not as good or profound as Beethoven's. Apart from the fact that not many symphonies are,does every symphony have to be epoch making to be an enjoyable or satisfying listen? Again,Spohr has his own individual sound world all his own. Some of the orchestration for No 5 is quite gorgeous. I would even go so far as to describe it as exquisite (the woodwind chirruping like birdsong). If there was a Mr Happy of classical music,Spohr's the man! His music has a genial,contented demeanour which just doesn't go down very well in these cynical times. Lovely music! :)
