Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Dorati was ahead of his time as a Haydn interpreter when, in the early 1970s, he made this pioneering integral recording of the symphonies. Superbly transferred to CD in full, bright and immediate sound, the perfrmances are a consistent delight, with brisk allegros and fast-flowing Andantes, with textures remarkably clean. The slow, rustic-sounding accounts of Minuets are more controversial, but the rhythmic bounce makes them attractive too."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition] Review of Decca 448-531
