Naxos 18th Century Classics On Spotify

Most Naxos albums are available on Spotify USA in their entirety, so I share this as the first playlist after the US launch. Quote from Naxos:

"Together with music publishing house Artaria, Naxos brings to you its 18th Century Classics series aimed at the rediscovery of music by Haydn's lesser known and sometimes forgotten contemporaries.

The series' two cycles focus on the symphony and concerto in the 18th century. Thanks to this innovative project, recorded works of composers such as Beck, Dussek, Kraus, Hofmann and Vanhal are now made accessible to a wider audience worldwide."

I arranged the albums by composer names alphabetically, according to the Naxos page, where you can find reviews and album booklets like this. A sampler disk, The World of 18th Century Classics was placed at the beginning, to offer an overview.

Here's the Spotify playlist: Naxos 18th Century Classics (483 tracks, total time: 1 day) It looks better in Album view.
