Works performed by:
Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood.
It is truly Haydn redefined. Hogwood's approach is vastly different from all the other cycles around that I know of. This close attention to every aspect of this music, and the extensive research into how to perform the symphonies is something to be enthusiastic about, for the result is such, that one cannot do other as admire the perfect result of all the labours. Thus is is a pity that Hogwood did not get the time and chance to record all the symphonies.
The three works on this CD are different from all what came before, in that, that all the movements are faster, much faster as any of the symphonies I heard so far. Swift, fast and furious I would say, and well it becomes them. Whatever was the reason for this, I don't know, but I liked it very much. The writing for brass is again an amazing aspect in the scores of all three symphonies.
Sound is excellent.
