A composition student of Napoleon-Henri Reber and a violin student of Henri Vieuxtemps, Benjamin Godard received a thorough education before beginning his teaching career at the Paris Conservatory in 1887. Although much of Godard’s works are forgotten, possibly due to his untimely death, his symphonic works featured here show an original outlook on the genre, fusing together melodic qualities with technical brilliance. This release features his Symphonie no. 2 op. 57, his Trois Morceaux op. 51, and his Symphonie gothique op. 23 performed by the Munchner Rundfunkorchester, conducted by David Reiland.
