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.
