At long last, our album Army of Generals: The World of the Mannheim Court Orchestra, from 1742-78 Volume I is finally available to purchase from our website and from Etcetera Records. It features a profile of music from the world of the legendary Mannheim Court Orchestra of the 18th century. The namesake of this anthology “Army of Generals” comes from a quote by English musicologist Charles Burney, who visited Mannheim in 1772 and wrote: “There are more solo players and good composers in this, than perhaps in any other orchestra in Europe; it is an army of generals, equally fit to plan a battle, as to fight it.”
