Haydn: Symphonies Nos 92, 93, 97, 98, and 99 – London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Colin Davis

The late Sir Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra present a collection of Haydn’s expressive and resplendent ‘London’ Symphonies alongside the spirited and melodic ‘Oxford’ Symphony.

Sir Colin Davis was long recognised as a pre-eminent Haydn interpreter. During his Indian summer with the orchestra he recorded both Die Schöpfung (The Creation) and Die Jahreszeiten (The Seasons) for LSO Live. These symphonies, presented here, were recorded in 2011 during this same period and make for revelatory listening.

                          **** - Excellent

Stefano Pagliantini - Musica magazine (Italy) - December 2014-January 2015

 "... wall-to-wall satisfactio, making one marvel anew at haydn’s unquenchable inventiveness in symphony after symphony. Sire Colin’s affinity with and love for this music is palpable ... and the hard-bitten LSO have clearly caught the bug too, playing with style and sensitivity for their erstwhile chief."

David Threasher - Gramophone magazine - Awards Issue 2014

 "... These are, in short, very attractive, musicianly performances, excellently recorded, by an old hand still very much at the helm of a fine orchestra."

John Warrack - International Record Review - October 2014

         Performance ****         Recording ****

"... Those who love Haydn should hear this set." 

Bayan Northcott - BBC Music magazine - October 2014

"...Davis conducted Haydn throughout his career, but his performances with the London Symphony Orchestra in 2011, two years before his death aged 85, had a special warmth and wisdom. That much is evident on these live recordings of five symphonies."
