Notes and Editorial Reviews

This music is light and delicious. Haydn wrote these six divertimentos for the English domestic market, and scored them for flute, violin, and cello. Most of the music was arranged from chamber and orchestra scores. A number of movements came from the opera Il mondo della luna, but formally Haydn is as inventive as ever. All six works have three movements, but their order changes constantly: some begin with Adagios; others have a fast-slow-fast shape. There are concluding minuets, and there's even a central scherzo.

The performances here are as lively as the music.... All of the players are members of the Huntgeburth family, and flutist Christoph takes a prominent solo role. He plays marvelously, especially for a period
Read more instrument. ... The music deserves your attention, and the performances make it a very easy listen.
