Czech composer Josef Rejcha (1752-95) was strongly influenced by the so-called "Mannheim School" composers, and he in turn left his mark on his own pupils, among them one Ludwig van Beethoven. Rejcha was particularly interested in the sonic qualities of string instruments and was quite enamored of the cello, as evidenced by the three concertos before us. All are excellent works, featuring captivating solo writing, fresh melodic invention, and colorful orchestral accompaniment.
Both the A major cello concerto and the D major for violin and cello (curiously titled as Concerto for Two Violins) recall Haydn in their catchy themes and rhythmic variety, but they also reflect the artistic milieu in which they were conceived. The D major cello concerto's extended first-movement introduction brings to mind Mozart, but the exceptional brilliance and virtuosity of the solo writing (which very occasionally causes slight intonational slips) is Rejcha's own, as he is clearly a master of this medium.
Through their equally stunning performances cellist Mikael Ericsson and violinist Jana Vlachová each make quite convincing cases for the music, as do Ondrej Kukal and the Czech Chamber Orchestra in their lively accompaniments. The 1995 recordings are somewhat bright and reverberant but nevertheless provide a comfortable balance between soloists and orchestra. Overall, this is a fine disc that should please more than just cello enthusiasts. – Victor Carr
