Notes and Editorial Reviews

This affectionately characterized performance heads the roster of "authentic" performances of the Surprise Symphony.

There's nothing routine...about [Brüggen's] 1992 recording with the Orchestra of the 18th Century. True, the sound is a tad boomy, often blurring wind detail in the tuttis. But this is the most affectionately characterised of all the "period" versions-though be warned, the big bang in the Andante comes a semiquaver too soon, presumably due to an editing blip. There is tenderness [and] guile... Frans Brüggen heads the roster of "authentic" performances.
