Notes and Editorial Reviews

Limited Edition - available for a brief time while supplies last!

Granted, there are better individual performances of the various symphonies from conductors as diverse as Eugen Jochum, Leonard Bernstein, Trevor Pinnock, and Thomas Fey; but when all is said and done this remains the finest complete set of Haydn symphonies yet recorded, and its basic musicality only seems to grow more impressive over time. Consider the early works: the period-instrument folks have had their say, especially in this music, but where will you find more clearly etched bass lines (Symphony No. 16), finer horns and timpani (finale of Symphony No. 13, based on the same tune Mozart later used in the finale of the "Jupiter" Symphony),
Read more or a harpsichord continuo that stays in the background and doesn't flatten Haydn's dynamics by turning each symphony into a keyboard concerto?

Just listen to Dorati's band rip into the opening of Symphony No. 48; hear the wailing oboes at the start of the "Farewell" Symphony; or notice the intense string playing in "La Passione". Where will you find a more rustic trio of Symphony No. 88's minuet, such brilliance from the C-alto horns in Symphony No. 90, or a more consistent set of "London" symphonies? Bottom line: you won't. Yes, there are some quibbles. The minuets tend to be slow by modern standards, and the engineering is somewhat inconsistent. In some of the more unfamiliar works the orchestral playing isn't as fine as we now expect as a matter of course, but then Dorati surprises us with, say, his knockout performance of the six-movement Symphony No. 60.

The competition in complete cycles also isn't terribly strong. Naxos' complete cycle has some super individual efforts from a wide range of performers, but is weakest in the late works, just where it needs to excel. Nimbus (also Brilliant Classics) has some lovely volumes in its complete edition, but often sounds as if it were recorded in an echo chamber, (again) it's weakest in the "London" symphonies, and certainly the playing does not surpass what we have here.

By rights this set never should go out of print: it remains a landmark in the history of recordings, and if you don't have it this very reasonably priced limited edition becomes a mandatory acquisition. Get it while you can, and do what I did: put it on your iPod and you'll never lack for a wonderful discovery. You can take it with you.

 Delightful June 1, 2012 By K. BAKER (HEBER CITY, UT) See All My Reviews "About the same time as Dorati recorded these symphonies, he was the music director of the National Symphony and one summer Dorati and the NSO put on the "Haydnfest"-- 10 nights of all Haydn concerts in two weeks. We went to the first. Then to the second, and then ended up going to all 10 concerts. This persuaded us that Haydn was the greatest composer who ever lived. Just try to name another composure whose music you could stand listening to for 10 nights in two weeks. It's not going to happen, not even Mozart.

So, as soon as this set came out, we bought it. It's as delightful as was the Haydnfest. There is some competition-- Fischer, now on Brilliant at bargain price, Goodman's incomplete set on Helios, and Fey on Hanssler. All in all, I would prefer Fey, except that it is on Hanssler. Hanssler brought out the first complete works of Bach set, which I bought and there was a flawed CD which Hanssler refused to replace. That's poor customer service, so I stopped buying the Fey issues-- too high a risk that you will waste your money.

The bottom line is this: Haydn lends himself to a variety of interpretations. I have all the complete and nearly complete sets mentioned above, and I wouldn't do without any of them. "
