Jan Vaclav Hugo Vorisek (for-ZHEE-shek) was a young protege of
Beethoven. He wrote at least two symphonies which have been recorded; but
the recordings are undeservedly obscure. The BBC performance was the best
I have heard. I was privileged to play the 2nd Symphony in the '60s. I
was told then that it was only the 2nd US presentation. The short-lived
Chamber Symphony of Philadelphia (Anshel Brushelow conducting) presented
it a year earlier. We played from prints of hand-copied parts used in
Philadelphia. Quite possibly the same set was used for the London performance.
