One of the most extraordinary bequests in the history of music, Haydn’s symphonies established his reputation as the greatest composer of his time.
This comprehensive boxed set – including not only Nos 1–104 but also No. 105 (Sinfonia concertante) and the less familiar No. 107 (‘Symphony A’) and No. 108 (‘Symphony B’) – celebrates both a highly commended symphonic series and a supremely imaginative composer who changed the course of classical music.
“Alert and vivacious playing from all concerned; admirable pacing and first-class sound…”
“Crisp, spirited readings… A winner.”
BBC Music Magazine
