Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood.
Three Symphonies with a name to it, made famous by it's fabulous orchestration for winds especially. Haydn has a fine sense for catching melodies, and writing fetching solo parts for winds and violins alike, with the odd cello or bass added. In the case of Le Matin-Le Midi- & Le Soir he made sure that we would never forget them, even long after hearing these works. You simply need one or two notes to have the aha effect, and anticipating what is coming. Hogwood makes sure that the impression you get, is a lasting one in terms of performance. I am constantly surprised by the amount of details he unearths.
The recording is very good.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
