In 2011 Thomas Fey was nominated for a Grammy for his world premiere recordings of the music of Antonio Salieri. Every new release of Haydn symphonies from Thomas Fey and his ensemble is greeted with enthusiasm; truly this is how Haydn should sound today. To bring this about, Fey’s musicians bridge past and present, performing both on modern string instruments and replicas of authentic period woodwind, brass and percussion instruments.
"... for those interested in Haydn, this release may prove fascinating, especially as it suggests - to be sure, without duplicating - some of the traits that stamp haydn’s later score. Collectors who have been following Fey’s ongoing traversal of the composer’s symphonies will surely want to hear this latest addition to it."
