Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is an audio-only (i.e., with no video content) Blu-ray disc playable only on Blu-ray players.

Adam Fischer and his Haydn Philharmonic are on hand to display their full musical powers at the original performance site. The overture to La fedeltà premiata must also once have been presented at Esterházy Castle in Eisenstadt. The hall has survived in its original st ate, and the precision with which 2222+ sound transports the horn soloists from its four corners into the list ener’s living room is simply amazing! Wolfgang Bauer explores all the aspects of the famous Trumpet Concerto in the marvelous brilliance of church acoustics in a performance with the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra, with an elegance
Read more and suppleness beyond compare.

Who might present music from Viennese classicism more authentically than the Vienna Piano Trio? With a dash of mischief, enormous dynamic breadth, and articulation rich in variants, the three musicians explore all the nooks and crannies of Haydn’s chamber music. A special treat: Jin Ju plays Haydn’s enchanting Variations Hob. XVII on the “Manfred Bürki” Steinway grand piano from 1901. This exceptional Chinese pianist celebrates a transparent, pastel-colored tone painting with the double variations so highly valued by Haydn. The Haydn Philharmonic under Adam Fischer makes for an audiophile experience of a special kind with its rendering of the “Surprise Symphony.” You are in for a big surprise!

outstanding three-dimensional surround sound – this Pure Audio Blu-ray Disc plays immediately, without a TV menu, and is a listening feast for audiophiles and discriminating music lovers.
