Symphony No. 16 in B flat major. 1759-1760.
No 40 in F major. 1766-1767.
No. 72 in D major. 1779. "Mit Pauken und Trompeten".
Works performed by:
Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood.
A delightful presentation of three symphonies. It is hard to say that I liked this or that symphony more, for they all have their felicities. No weak moments and always full of surprises, like the second movement of No. 40, "Andante più tosto Allegretto". Quite impressive as written. And No. 72 is a marvel, every single movement holds so many creative turns, that one never stops admiring the music. A cosmos quite separate from the previous two symphonies.
The performances are spot on as is the recording.
