Haydn: Die Jahreszeiten (The Seasons) – Miah Persson, Jeremy Ovenden, Andrew Foster-Williams, London Symphony Chorus, London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Colin Davis

Following the success of Die Schöpfung (The Creation), which had swiftly gained popularity throughout Europe, Haydn’s librettist Baron Gottfried van Swieten suggested another project, based on James Thomson’s pastoral epic The Seasons. One of Haydn’s last major works, Die Jahreszeiten depicts the yearly cycle of life in the countryside through the eyes of three peasants, providing us with music of thrilling vitality and creativity.

    **** Excellent

Giuseppe Rossi - Musica magazine (Italy) - September 2011


"This is a noteable performance and the sound is admirable ... Comparisons with other German-language recordings confirm Davis’s coherant and unified approach ... Miah Persson’s Hanne is fluent and colourful; she never over-dramatises. Her extensive aria in the ’Summer’ section is beautifully fashioned... There is much joy in this LSO version ... This must have been a special evening in the Barbican Hall and it is certainly a special recorded version of Haydn’s The Seasons"

Antony Hodgson - Classical Source


"... Davis’s success with haydn’s oratorio is not surprsing. His orchestra plays a lean, clean sound, Davis managing a judicious balance between the strings and nicely prominent brass ... special kudos to the London Symphony horm section, which does bang-up work in the hunting chorus ... overall, there’s character and spirit to the solo singing, as there is to the performance as a whole ... Davis’s Die Jahreszeiten can compete with the best version available."

Lee Passarella - Audiophile Audition - 10 August 2011


Performance ****     Recording ****

"...the performance displays clarity and precision: the sound articulates the complex textures neatly, allowing Haydn’s remarkable scoring and highly effective vocal writing to register to delightful effect."

George Hall - BBC Music magazine - August 2011


       ’Editor’s Choice"

"...Sir Colin, revelling in his glorious Indian summer with the LSO, points heavenwards in this visionary reading of Haydn’s late masterpiece."  *****

Andrew Stewart - Classic FM magazine - August 2011
