Symphonies No. 27/32/37/107.
The Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood.
Hogwood's is a mild approach and very thoughtful too, and a stickler for details. Well balanced performances, well recorded and articulated. After the first hearing of the complete set they have grown on me and towards me. The pleasure is all mine in listening to Hogwood's take. No criticisms at all apart from some minor sound issues. In both the 27& 32 the bottom end of the orchestra is a bit blurred. Basses, celli and timpani tend to be boomy. In No. 37 it is no issue anymore. No 107 has some shrillness in the winds.
