Notes and Editorial Reviews

Franz Joseph Haydn's life spanned the end of the Baroque era to the nascent stirrings of the Romantic period, and, by virtue of his genius, he developed the symphony, string quartet, and keyboard sonata into the musical forms that would come to dominate the musical landscape. Future masters such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert were enormously indebted to him for his groundbreaking work and innovations.
This disc is part of the National Public Radio-Milestones of the Millennium series, and offers a sampling of the composer's prodigious output with performances by some of the foremost musical talents of our time.
Among the selections are Yo-Yo Ma's virtuoso reading of the Allegro from the Cello Concerto in D major, Leonard
Read more Bernstein's stirring account of "Die Himmel erzählen die Ehre Gottes" from 'Die Schöpfung,' and a gripping, powerful Agnus Dei from 'Missa in tempore belli' performed by Tafelmusik.
The performances and recordings, all from Sony's vast music library, are excellent throughout, and the booklet that accompanies the CD includes informative notes by Jan Swafford. Read less
