We all know of his piano studies, but the symphonies of Carl Czerny now have all been recorded. They're really excellent works - very much in the Beethoven-ian cast and masterfully orchestrated.

Czerny's opus numbers reach into the 800s!

Kallivoda (or Kalliwoda) is another composer whose symphonies demand a listen. Also in the Beethoven/Schubert mold, they are powerful and attractive works.

Calliope label just has issued a disc of Kallivoda quartets.

Kallivoda was once well known. His 5th symphony was on the first program of the ancestor of today's New York Philharmonic.
